  • Free-Will Vs Determinism

    When discussing the humane contrast between Free Will and Determinism, Free Will is the side I support. My argument is the concept that all natural occurrences can’t always be explained, but they “just happen”. Even though scientific facts contradict Free Will, a balance of the two beliefs is very possible and is controversial in modern conversation. All human beings contain Free Will in any scenario or situation they encounter; Although this is different for each individual and their beliefs.…

  • My Personal Philosophy

    I have completely modified my beliefs in regards to how free I actually am. Growing up I was always taught how we all have free choices and how we must choose wisely. (I still agree with the choosing wisely part). But more importantly I now see how many of the choices that I made were not really free at all.

    only viable position in the debate concerning free will and determinism. In doing so, I will present, explain, and critically evaluate compatibilism. I will then consider, but ultimately refute, the following two objections against compatibilism: the hard determinists’ argument that we have no free will due to causal determinism and the libertarians’ argument that we are not causally determined. Compatibilism is the theory that causal determinism and free will are both true. Causal determinism…
