Wachter, Daniel von (2003): Free Agents as Cause. In: Petrus, K. (ed.) : (2003): On Human Persons. Frankfurt: Ontos Verlag. pp. 183-194 [PDF, 59kB]


The dilemma of free will is that if actions are caused deterministically, then they are not free, and if they are not caused deterministically then they are not free either because then they happen by chance and are not up to the agent. I propose a conception of free will that solves this dilemma. It can be called agent causation but it differs from what Chisholm and others have called so.
