“A Moral Argument against Freedom”
Abstract: A moral argument against free choice, which draws on Luther to argue that the good moral agent has no choice about how to act, as for them following the good is the only option – so the moral agent lacks free will in this sense. I contrast this argument with more traditional determinist arguments against freedom, and also consider how this view still leaves room for responsibility and imputation.
