Free Will
General Catalog Course Title:
Free Will
Terms Offered:
Fall 2012

What would it take for our choices and actions to be ‘free’? Is everything we do ultimately the result of factors beyond our control—and if so does this threaten our freedom? If free will is an illusion, can we still be held morally responsible for how we act? In this seminar we will read and discuss together a selection of important texts (ancient, medieval and modern) on the problem of free will.
