  • The Disembodied Voice Of A. J Ayer Character Analysis

    Voice 1: ...and therein our problem lies, free will exists. It is your fault that you chose to talk to me about this. Voice 2: No, no, no. All of our actions were determined beforehand because of the natural order of things. This conversation exists because of previous causes, and the causes had causes, and so on. Free will does not exit. Voice 1: I cannot bring myself to believe in such a thing.

  • The Complexities Of Fate And Free Will In Mary Doria Russell's The Sparrow

    In Mary Doria Russell’s novel The Sparrow, the complexities of social and structural sin, as well as fate and free will are evident. In class, we defined free will as making the conscious decisions of the choices in one’s life, and fate as very one-dimensional, where one’s outcome is already pre-determined (Theodicy PPT). In a story where God is present, it is hard to decide whether following what you believe to be Gods path is fate or free will, which is challenged in The Sparrow. Furthermore,…

  • Mars And Human Free Will In Virgil's The Aeneid

    soldiers die on the warfront during final battle between the Latins and the Trojans. Bloodshed at all costs, yet ruthless Mars prolongs the chaos while being the source of it as well. The other deities sit in the halls of Jove, looking down on the mortals. They are “filled with pity”(X.898) while watching the mortals fight a battle manipulated by the gods themselves. Amidst the chaos, I will argue that humans only have a superficial free will because the choices they make always becomes…

  • The Concept Of Free Will In Milton's Paradise Lost

    To determine whether or not Satan has free will in “Paradise Lost, first we will broadly define free will to determine a clearer definition of what Milton considers as free will. According to the Oxford Dictionary, free will is “the power of acting without the constraint of necessity or fate; the ability to act at one’s own discretion” (Oxford Dictionaries Language Matters).
