Workshop: Compatibilist Libertarianism: Advantages and Challenges (October 29, 2021)

Idea & Motivation:

Compatibilist libertarianism provides a metaphysical foundation for reconciling actualist free will with physical determinism by driving an ontological wedge between different layers of reality (List 2014, 2019). According to compatibilist libertarianism, free will can exist at higher levels even if the fundamental physical level is deterministic. This workshop is intended to explore the advantages and challenges of compatibilist libertarianism and the progress it brings to the free will debate.
