Title: Freedom as faith
Authors: Aganey, Diana
Supervisors: Broadie, Sarah
Keywords: Freedom
Issue Date: 6-Jun-2011
Abstract: The belief in free will is something we are entitled to hold despite what determinism says. This notion however cannot be adequately explained or defended by traditional accounts of freedom amongst which, compatibilist and libertarian perspectives dominate the field of inquiry. I argue that an alternative approach is necessary to capture the full implications of what freedom as an idea contains and to establish this idea's validity, though one which exhibits none of the usual extravagances which philosophers so often pursue in their attempts at justification.
