Responsibility and Free Will Essay

Please see here for criteria of the paper.

Write a 500- to 700-word essay that connects the notions of free will, consciousness, and philosophical ethics. Use the following questions as guides to help you formulate your response:

  • Do we have free will, and if we think we do, would it matter if we do not? (I usually write in a style that shows I am against there being absolute free will)
  • Is consciousness something other than matter, or are our conscious thoughts simply predictable as part of a physical system?
  • How do answers to the first two questions affect judgments regarding right and wrong? In other words, are humans responsible agents or not?
