Get That Chip Out Of My Brain

This interactive activity deals with issues broadly to do with free will and determinism, alternative possibilities and moral responsibility. It owes a lot to two essays in particular. The first is Harry Frankfurt's celebrated 1969 article from The Journal of Philosophy, Alternate Possibilities and Moral Responsibility; the second is an essay by John Martin Fischer & Mark Ravizza titled Morally Responsible People Without Freedom, which originally appeared as the final chapter of their 1998 book Responsibility and Control: A Theory of Moral Responsibility (CUP).

Really Deep Thought

To imagine a human world without ethics, but in which life goes well, it is necessary to suppose a golden age: a world without competition, or causes of strife, or clashing desires, or envy or malice.
