Craig 1 Ajane Craig PHL 100 Professor Katz 4/17/16 Week 13 of PHL 100 notes Am I Free? Kinds of freedom: Political Vote for whoever Wear whatever you want Can live wherever you want Religious Practice any religion you want We feel like we make choices (a lot) but do we really? Or is what we choose not a free choice? Freedom of thought: Metaphysical freedom Restrictions Political/ legal Biological Logical Choices Come to class or not What to wear something or not What to eat ( sandwich or not) Kill someone or not Possible measures Craig 2 Ajane Craig PHL 100 Professor Katz 4/17/16 1. Yes 2. No Holbart argument NO 1. When one makes a choice , that is an event in that person brain 2. Our brains are parts of physical universe 3. The physical universe is deterministic 4. Our choices were determined at the first moment of the universe 5. So we don’t have control over our choices 6. So, our choices are not free Determinism Everything that happens in the physical universe at any moment is determined by how things were the moment before, together with the laws of physics Indeterminism Determinism is false (an unfolding of chance?) given the state of the physical universe at any moment, and given the laws of physics. There is more than one way things might be at the next moment.
