Whether or not humans have free will is a very popular question. This is because everyone wants to know if the decisions they make are truly theirs or if their decisions matter at all. If everything is predetermined then what you choose wouldn’t matter because it would be bound to happen regardless of if you chose it or not. Without free will many people believe that life would have less meaning to it. With free will comes power and importance. Having the ability to choose what will happen gives humans the possibility of making an impact on the world. As well, people do not really like the idea of having their whole life pre-planned without their input. It is almost impossible to say if humans have free will or not. Without concrete evidence there is no proof that we do or do not have free will and it will most likely stay this way for some time to come. I have a libertarianism view when it comes to whether or not humans have free will. I believe in the possibility of free will and I do not accept determinism. Free will is defined as the ability to make decisions at your own discretion. Determinism is defined as the events of the past, in conjunction with the laws of nature, necessitate every event in the future. What determinism means is that past events and the laws of nature are the factors that dictate what decision will be chosen. The libertarianism view accepts incompatibilism. Incompatibilism states that free will and determinism are incompatible and cannot work
