    Free Action

    1st Edition

    By A.I. Melden

    That a science of human conduct is possible, that what any man may do even in moments of the most sober and careful reflection can be understood and explained, has seemed to many a philosopher to cast doubt upon our common view that any human action can ever be said to be truly free.

    The Refutation of Determinism

    An Essay in Philosophical Logic, 1st Edition

    By M.R. Ayers

    Perhaps everyone who can think has the concept of possibility, but no one understands it. The metaphysical theory of Determinism is a symptom of this lack of understanding, and the inconclusiveness of its opponents’ arguments indicates that the lack is universal. In this book, first published in…
