What does it mean for an agent to be free? Is determinism true?
What are laws of nature? This book deals with the interconnections
between these questions. Backmann argues for the view that
libertarianism can be reconciled with determinism. In order to
reach this goal, libertarianism classically defined as an
incompatibilist theory of free will is defined as the thesis that
at the time of decision, the agent must be able to choose between
alternative courses of action. Backmann claims that this notion of
libertarianism can be reconciled with determinism provided that
determinism is understood in a Humean fashion, i.e. backed by a
Humean theory of laws of nature. The resulting view Humean
Libertarianism is an intermediate position between classical
compatibilism and incompatibilism.
