Can Free Will Exist Amidst Determinism?
[ send me this paper ]
5 pages in length. Most people like to think that human beings possess free will, at least with regard to a wide range of actions. In contrast, however, mankind also thinks that certain people lack the aspect of free will. Many great theorists have contended that the reason some people may, indeed, lack free will is not so much due to the determined nature of their choices and behavior, but rather due to the fact that their behavior is not responsive to their choices in such a manner as to reflect those who do possess free will. When examining this view in further detail, it is important for the student to consider whether or not one can possess free will while at the same time having one's choices and behavior determined by a greater force. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

He has become prejudice against the evidence of God, and dismissed it simply because he chose not to believe in it." Bibliography lists 2 sources.
