Abstract: This research examines the novel Mad Dogs & Co by Chart Korbjitti to find out how conflicts between social norms and a quest for freedom affect the characters’ happiness. The concepts and theories employed in the analysis of the novel are derived from Jean Paul Sartre’s philosophy of existentialism. A close reading of the novel reveals the author’s existentialist view that strict family rules, injustice, despair, mistrust, too much reliance on others, and a negative attachment to the past all contribute to the characters’ unhappiness and their conflicts with people around them. The novel also conveys the author’s belief that as long as people use freedom with responsibility, they will be able to find some peace and happiness. Such a perspective can be applied to our everyday lives and interactions with others. It is also hoped that the findings of this research can suggest ways to help reduce social conflicts and enable members of society to find peace and happiness in their lives.
