Some theories of free will and determinism make a distinction between different parts of the “self” involved in making decisions or choices (for example, the will, will power, the springs of your actions, the internal psychological motivations for your actions, or the hereditary or family background you have. Compare and contrast a hard determinist and a soft determinist (compatibilist) on these parts of the decision and choice process. Summarize their views, then answer the following questions:

  • Think of an example decision or choice you have had to make.
  • Do you feel that your will (what you want to do) correlated well with your genuine intentions, desires, and motivations?
  • Were there times when you do not end up doing what “you” would really choose to do?
