Free Will and Moral Responsibility: 
In what morally interesting sense (if any) do we have free will? 


Let’s think about the question first…

It is not just any sense of free will we are interested in, but a morally interesting sense. 

We can start by considering different senses of free will (that we may or may not have) …
… then we can consider whether these different senses are morally interesting…
… then we can ask do we (or do we not) have free will in a morally interesting sense?

Join us as we explore the arguments in regard to free will and moral responsibility!
