The Significance of Free Will

Robert Kane (Contributor Webpage)

The indeterminist theory of free will presented in Chs. 8 and 9 is further developed in this chapter by responding to a series of objections. The issues raised by these objections involve indeterminacy and possible worlds, explanation and probability, non‐deterministic causation, rational explanation of actions, character building and the historical dimension of responsibility, strength and weakness of will, choice, responsibility and indeterminism, action and indeterminism, control and responsibility, agent causation, and self‐determination.

Keywords:   agent causation, causation, character, explanation, free will, indeterminism, probability, rationality, responsibility, self‐determination
