Description - Free Will by Ilham Dilman

The debate between free will and its opposing doctrine, determinism, is one of the key issues in philosophy. This text provides a comprehensive introduction to this question and examines the contributions made by 16 of the most outstanding thinkers from the time of early Greece to modern times: Homer, Sophocles, Plato, Aristotle, St Augustine, St Thomas Aquinas, Descartes, Spinoza, Hume, Kant, Schopenhauer, Freud, Sartre, Weil, Wittgenstein and Moore. Spanning a wide field of enquiry, Ilham Dilman brings together all the dimensions of the problem of free will with examples from literature, ethics and psychoanalysis. He draws out valuable insights from both sides of the freedom-determinism divide and brings back into the limelight eternal questions about human destiny.
