The main perceived threats to our freedom of will are various alleged determinisms: physical/causal; psychological; biological; theological. Artist experiencing each variety of determinism, there are a person who (i) deny its reality, either because of the existence of free will or on independent grounds; (ii) accept its reality but argue for its compatibility with free will; or (iii) accept its reality and deny its compatibility with free will. Based on the concept of Thomas Reid, “the rock broke the window” into the more precise “the rock’s having momentum M at the point of contact with the window caused the window’s subsequent shattering.”
