PHIL 4484 R11 - Freedom and Responsibility
Session I, May 28-June 27, 2019
Rose Hill: MTWTh, 1-4 p.m.

We will explore the nature of free will and moral responsibility. In particular, we will seek to answer the following questions: What is free will? Is it a necessary condition of moral responsibility? Are freedom and responsibility compatible with determinism - i.e., the claim that the initial state of the universe plus the laws of nature determine everything that happens? Does our practice of holding one another responsible reveal the nature of moral responsibility? By the end of this course, you will be able to discuss and evaluate some of the answers to these questions put forward by contemporary philosophers. Fulfills the Values seminar/EP4 requirement in Fordham's core curriculum.
