PHIL 3410H Epistemology: Unit 6: Free Will

Robert Lurz

Free Will

What is it to do something of one’s own free will? Is it possible to act of one’s own free will if everything that happens in the universe is caused in advance by previous events according to laws of nature? If free will is an illusion, can we make any sense of right and wrong, moral responsibility, deliberation, personal worth and integrity?
