Libertarianism 1. Which of the following view insists that freedom is only possible if there are  some human actions that are not determinately caused? Libertarianism 2. Do libertarians accept the avoidability condition? Yes. 3. According to Chisholm, what is the relationship between agent-causes and  event-causes? Agent-causes are distinct from and irreducible to event-causes. 4. How does Chisholm respond to the worry that an action that is not  determined by previous events will be random or uncaused and so unfree? He insists that "not being determined by previous events" is not the same thing as being  random or uncaused. 5. In Chisholm's theory of human action, are agent-causes random? No. The agent fully determines the action, even though the agent is not herself fully  determined by anything else.
