Abstract: 

This work examines the nature and causes of crises that are bedeviling human society, and argues the thesis that freedom has a pivotal role to play in the emergence of crises in society. The work takes it for granted that there are different forms of crisis and that the highest form of crisis in the world is war, which itself, has many variants. Consequently, when I speak of the causes of war, I am by so-doing talking about the phenomenon of war as a representative of all forms of war and as an example of a form of crisis in society. I am quite aware of the various factors that have been identified by scholars as the causes of crises, but there seems to be an omission of the place of freedom in their submissions. The paper therefore argues that all forms of deprivation are denials of freedom and that crises are mostly products of unhealthy by social relations which are often exhibited in a form of either a denial of freedom or an excessive exercise of it.
