A Conversation for Free Will versus Determinism
Wittgenstein's "Lectures on Free Will" (LFW)
Steve K. Started conversation Aug 6, 2002
Wittgenstein always seemed to me one of the more down to earth philosophers. This site has an interesting take on his view of free will:
"Applying this strategy of unveiling the wrong use of terms, in the LFW Wittgenstein examines which situations of action people would call free and which not. And indeed in many cases the problem of the incompatibility of determinism and Free Will dissolves when we take a closer look at how we use the apparently contradictory concepts in our ordinary life."
"Dissolving" philosophical problems seems to be W.'s primary approach.
