Discussion on the idea of freedom of will and determination in the Philosophy Department of Lucknow University

Lucknow: A seminar was organized by the Department of Philosophy, University of Lucknow. In this seminar, research student of the Department of Philosophy, Ajita Yadav presented her lecture. The topic of the lecture presented by her was ‘Free will and determinism: are they really incompatible?’.

An attempt was made by him to explain freedom of will and determinism through his lectures, as well as the difference between the two was clarified. An attempt has been made to explain how Kant interpreted the concept of freedom of will.

Through this he explained that a free, mind and body is only capable of rational thought. Only a rational person can think about morality. According to determinism, free will is actually an illusion, and our behavior is governed through internal or external forces over which we have no control. In the lecture presented, freedom of will and determinism were explained through examples, and an attempt was made to find the middle way between the two by compatibilism.
