kiaer.ts Posted March 5, 2011 Share Posted March 5, 2011 (edited) The issue is now whether an action is caused or uncaused but whether the agent himself caused it or some other factor was determinative. The notion that a person does not have free will if the chemistry of his body caused something is based on the irrational idea that you are not your own body. Free will is not will that is free from reality. It is morally free will - the will of a mature healthy person in possession of his faculties and free from external coercion.
