Sunday Terminology: Libertarianism


Libertarianism (metaphysical). In *ethics and *metaphysics, the view that human beings sometimes can will more than one possibility. According to this view, a person who freely made a particular choice could have chosen differently, even if nothing about the past prior to the moment of choice had been different. Libertarianism therefore rejects the *compatibilist view that *free will and *determinism are consistent. [1]
