Even if 1 is True, 2 could still be False.52.Give an explicit statement (in your own words) of theLuck Argument for theIncompatibility of Indeterminism and Free Will.Explaintwo objectionsthatcould be raised against the argument..
53.Explain Robert Kane's Libertarianview about howIndeterminism andFree Will might fit together.What does Kane mean by"knife edgechoices"and aself forming act (SFAs)?Briefly explain what role they playin his theory?
-Some Libertarians first establish Indeterminism (e.g. by appeal to science,such as quantum mechanics (QM).)-Then they try to show how/why Indeterminism is Compatible with Free Willand how it might produce Free Will (e.g., Robert Kane’s theory of how QMuncertainty in the brain might produce free moral decision-making.)-They conclude we have Free Will.-Quantum mechanics shows us that Physical Indeterminism is True.-The brain as a complex physical system is Indeterministic (notfullydeterministic).-In very close decisions that shape our character (self-forming actions SFAs),the quantum instability of the brain may increase.-In such cases (e.g., the woman on the way to the important meeting who seesa mugging), the unstable state may move into either of two successor statesdepending on which of one’s competing values wins.It is not just a matter ofluck or randomness but of what one wills. It is consistent with Free Will.-At least some of our actions are Free and ones for which we are MorallyResponsible.
