Sloboda volje, uzročnost i slučaj

Opis projekta
The overall goal of our research is to contribute to our deeper understanding of what is involved in having and experiencing free will by offering some new insights and arguments in the pertaining areas. The more specific goal of our project is to produce original contributions in some central areas of research into free will, in the following disciplines: metaphysics, philosophy of mind, ethics, history of philosophy, philosophy of physics, as well in philosophical interpretations of relevant results of psychology and neuroscience. The most specific goals of the research are the following. First, we plan to show that deterministic threats to free will are surmountable. Second, we plan to show that indeterministic threats (i.e. those based on randomness and luck) are also surmountable. Third, we will argue that some problems with compatibilistic accounts are more serious than has hitherto been recognized. This is due, first, to the fact that, in our opinion, compatibilism is also susceptible to a specific luck objection, and second, to the fact that it is sometimes based on insufficiently clear notions of causality, determinism and natural laws. Fourth, we will argue that Aristotelian version of compatibilism can bring some fresh light to contemporary discussions, but that it is also susceptible to a specific luck objection. Research activities can be grouped under five main headings: 1. Causality, laws of nature and luck (1.1. Causality, laws of nature and action; 1.2. Indeterminism and luck; 1.3. The varieties of determinism), 2. Brain, mind and agency (2.1. Freedom and consciousness, 2.2. Mental causation and ascriptions of intentionality, 2.3. Some perspectives from neuroscience), 3. Moral responsibility (3.1. Principle of Alternative Possibilities, 3.2. Bioenhancement and responsibility), 4. Aristotelian perspective (4.1. Aristotle’s compatibilism, 4.2. Aristotle on moral responsibility and luck), 5. Free will, determinism and the quantum rescue.
