Abstract

Peter van Inwagen, author of the classic book An Essay on Free Will (1983), has established himself over the last forty years as a leading figure in the philosophical debate about the problem of free will. This volume presents eleven influential essays from throughout his career, as well as two new and previously unpublished essays, 'The Problem of Fr** W*ll' and 'Ability'. The essays include discussions of determinism, moral responsibility, 'Frankfurt counterexamples', the meaning of 'the ability to do otherwise', and the very definition of free will, as well as critiques of writings on the topic by Daniel Dennett and David Lewis. An introduction by the author discusses the history of his thinking about free will. The volume will be a valuable resource for those looking to engage with van Inwagen's significant contributions to this perennially important topic.

Abstract

Der Tod widerfahrt uns in unserer Leiblichkeit, die aber tragt eine geschlechtliche Signatur. Wussten Sie, dass in der Bibel keine einzige Frau Suizid begeht, dass aber heute mehr Frauen als Manner aktive Sterbehilfe in Anspruch nehmen? Haben Sie sich schon einmal Gedanken daruber gemacht, ob sich uber den Tod Jesu genderspezifische Aussagen machen lassen und ob das (Nicht-)Trauern-Konnen mit der je eigenen geschlechtlichen Identitat zu tun hat? Konnten Sie beobachten, ob demenzkranke Menschen die Geschlechterrollen ihres bisherigen Lebens beibehalten oder durchbrechen? Und wenn Sie uber den Tod hinaus hoffen, haben Sie dann auch Hoffnung fur Ihre Leiblichkeit und Geschlechtlichkeit? Hat fur Sie gar der Tod selbst ein Geschlecht? Wurden Sie fur Ihre Beerdigung eher einen Bestatter oder eine Bestatterin wahlen? Fragen wie diesen und vielen anderen rund um den Zusammenhang von Tod und Gender in Geschichte und Gegenwart gehen die Beitrage dieses Bandes nach, die aus allen theologischen Disziplinen sowie aus Philosophie, Religions- und Kulturwissenschaften stammen. Sie zielen auf eine neue Wahrnehmung von gender diversity im Umgang mit Sterben und Tod und damit zugleich auf die Befreiung aus normativen Manner- und Frauenbildern im Horizont einer realistischen Anthropologie.

Abstract

In his treatise Freedom of the will Jonathan Edwards addresses the human will and God's sovereignty. His thesis is that moral responsibility is not inconsistent with God's determining disposal of all events of every kind. He contends that while man is indeed free, God is still sovereign and still solely responsible for man's salvation. In the present book the author also seeks to reconcile foreknowledge of God with the liberty of will in humans and builds upon Edwards' treatise to do so.

Abstract

To reconcile the decrees of God with the free agency of man, is a subject which has received the attention of metaphysicians in different ages of the world: sometimes they have denied the decrees, or explained them as conditional; and sometimes they have denied free agency, or explained it, so as to be no agency at all. The author of this book attempts to to prove that man is a free agent, free, in willing, as well as in doing what he wills; and that this freedom is consistent with the absolute, and eternal decrees of God respecting him. The author has takes a different view of man from what has been taken, and one, which he believes, is more agreeable to nature: he considers, that the human mind has two powers, called the Understanding and the Will. Understanding is the passive power of the mind, and the will is the active power, and the mind always wills with liberty or freedom. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved).
