The Evolution of the Will
The Stoic theory of fate had a great influence on the way other philosophers talked about topics such as free will and moral responsibility. Many of the central concepts and controversies surrounding the modern problem of free will emerged from the Stoic system, and can be traced back to the doctrines that Stoics held, or attacks that their opponents launched against them, or misunderstandings that arose as Stoicism was blended into the revival of Platonic philosophy. The ancient debate over the issue of moral responsibility is discussed.
