Sean Hines Posted over 3 years ago There is no such thing as free will. The problem of free will comes from the gap between our reasons and our actions. Reasons do not cause us to do anything, but having sufficient reason wills (but doesn't force) us to act. So in any decision situation we experience a gap between our reasons and our actions. This is what causes us to think that we have free will. (or so they tell me in the philosophy of mind lectures I have been following) This is the definition of free will I use when I think about the freedom of the will. Can anyone agree or disagree with it so that I can have a more thorough spectrum of the concept of free will to apply all this too?
