(p.3) 1 Incompatibilism
Libertarian Accounts of Free Will

Randolph Clarke (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

A basic characterization of free will is offered, and common beliefs about the value of free will are reviewed. Two incompatibilist theses are distinguished: broad incompatibilism holds that both free will and moral responsibility are incompatible with determinism, while merely narrow incompatibilism holds that free will requires indeterminism but moral responsibility does not. Minimal versions of each of these theses are characterized.

Keywords:   determinism, free will, incompatibilism, indeterminism, moral responsibility, value
