*Free will means that a person can make a decision, but also act differently if they so wished to.
*If somebody is constrained and then performs an action because of this, then they do infact have no free will.
*For example, in cases of ****.
*The victim has no free will, as they are being forced into having sex.
*Our free will is also curtailed by our environment, knowledge and values.
*We aren't just curtailed by external influences, there are also internal influences such as past thoughts and memories.
*We are also curtailed by possibility.
*Just because we want to fly, doesn't mean we can. The laws of nature deny this to us.
Jean Paul Sartre
*The idea of Free Will is central to us as humans.
*Free will is not the elimination of all influencing factors, but our ability to be autonomous and make decisions freely through reason.
*It is our ability to make decisions consciously knowing the consequences.
