Discussion question

| March 10, 2016

The topic in this chapter, Freedom and Determinism, has been at least implied in our previous explorations. Underlying our resolution of this problem are our positions on Epistemology and Metaphysics. Your position on this problem will determine your position in Ethics (including Political Philosophy), which we will explore more fully subsequently. Consider the reading in this module in your discussion. Answer these questions:

1. Are your actions due to your free will or are they predetermined? Lay out your arguments for your position. Use the material you’ve studied thus far in this course to support your arguments. Is your position closest to causal determinism, hard determinism, soft determinism (compatibilism), or indeterminism?

2. Give your conclusion to the first question. What ethical responsibilities do you have? Support your conclusions.

3. What does your position imply in regards to your responsibilities to local and global societies?
