It discussed the research variable (freedom) according to differences in the fields of freedoms in terms of the variable of specialization (scientific – human). It also aims at identifying the level of freedoms in Jordan in various areas. The study reached conclusions that may be the normal case in different countries but not in Jordan. It reflected the level of freedom in different areas, presented both quantitatively and qualitatively. It concluded that there is no absolute freedom, and the citizen must strive to free oneself from potential control, working according to the need of mental or rational motives. And to reach a state of freedom, people should be the source of all authorities. And to establish freedom and democracy, federal coalition principle must be practiced.
