Explain and Evaluate Hierarchical Compatibilism (Example)

Document Preview:

Name Institutional affiliation Course Date Hierarchical Compatibilism There are two main philosophical positions and they include determinism and indeterminism. Determinism holds the idea that every state of affairs including human decisions and actions are ultimately determined by external causes beyond their will. Indeterminism holds a different perspective that every single event is wholly determined by antecedent causes. It is simply the opposite of determinism because it holds that if one event is undetermined then determinism is false. Indeterminism supports the free will of all events (Salles). The main problem between the two is the free will. Compatibilism is the belief that offers a solution to that problem. Compatibilism is concerned with the dispute between free will and determinism (McKenna and Russell). Compatibilists believe that there is a close correlation between human freedom and determinism. It allows us to take responsibility for our actions regardless of right or wrong. Compatibilism freedom and morals of an individual why not use the determinists concept? A determinist could have looked at the promotion rather than revenge and health effects of addiction rather than its pleasures. According to my opinion hierarchical compatibilism is not morally or ethically correct to be used as a way of practicing freedom. What one thinks he wants is not what he/she needs and thus the best alternatives should be weighed. Works Cited Caruso Gregg D. "hierarchical compatibilism."
