  • Alfred Jules Ayer: Ordinary And Constrained Actions

    Alfred Jules Ayer is one of the many philosophers throughout history who have attempted to analyze the concept of free will. He believed that free will is prominent within humans and that it is compatible with determinism. This compatibility stems from the idea that free will should be relative to constraint rather than causation, which free will is more often considered relative to. Ayer successfully defends his claims about free will by first breaking down the issue of free will, then defining his idea of constraint. He further argues that there is a difference between ordinary caused action and constrained action. This ideology, that there is a distinction between ordinary and constrained, is the main critique point for many who do not subscribe to Ayer’s beliefs. However, Ayer’s defense for this argument follows the idea that with a full conceptual understanding of these two terms, a distinction is quite prevalent. The issue of free will begins within the understanding of determinism, a commonly held theory that claims that all actions are caused by previous states of affairs or events. If determinism is true, then persons cannot be held morally responsible for their actions as they did not have any choice in them. Another common belief is that of indeterminism,…

God can do all things possible, He cannot do the stupid and impossible. Those things outside his nature are…

The general argument made by Carol Roth in the article “Free Community College Isn’t Free...and it’s a Bad Idea” is that saying that college will be free when it really won’t, and it will cause more problems and evidently not solve any current problems. She states that nothing is really ever free because there has to be someone paying for the programs that the schools are…

  • Mars And Human Free Will In Virgil's The Aeneid

    warfront during final battle between the Latins and the Trojans. Bloodshed at all costs, yet ruthless Mars prolongs the chaos while being the source of it as well. The other deities sit in the halls of Jove, looking down on the mortals. They are “filled with pity”(X.898) while watching the mortals fight a battle manipulated by the gods themselves. Amidst the chaos, I will argue that humans only have a superficial free will because the choices they make always becomes ministerial, for the gods…

  • Evil: Evil, Suffering, And Evil

    I believe that it is needed and that God should not take it away. If he were to taking it away, then he would be taking away our free will. I do not see my God as all-controlling. I can look to him for answers and it is up to us as humans to do the same. If we chose to look to him, he can guide us to the right decision. We can do this to help combat the moral and natural evils in our world that are there because of free will. We need evil and suffering in our world because it allows us to grow…
