Persuade me: Free will is possible
Back To Top
What I am looking for here, is just any reasonable explanation, or plausible description of how free will is metaphysically possible. I am not necessarily looking for proof that it is true, but just that it is something that isn't excluded somehow by some logical contradiction or other impossibility.
By free will, I am specifically referring to libertarian free will which is the ability for someone to choose something or make a decision which is free from external influence, or the ability to perform otherwise in any given decision.
At some point in the distant past, the universe went through a phase of cosmic inflation,
Stars formed, planets coalesced, and on at least one of them life took root.
Through a long process of evolution this life developed into the human race.
Humans conquered fire, built complex societies and advanced technology .
All of that so we can argue about nothing.
