Dennett on freedom

Metaphilosophy 36 (4):414-426 (2005)
Abstract
This article is my contribution to an author-meets-critics session on Daniel Dennett’s Freedom Evolves (Viking, 2003) at the 2004 meetings of the American Philosophical Association – Pacific Division. Dennett criticizes a view I defend in Autonomous Agents (Oxford University Press, 1995) about the importance of agents’ histories for autonomy, freedom, and moral responsibility and defends a competing view. Our disagreement on this issue is the major focus of this article. Additional topics are manipulation, avoidance, and avoidability
Keywords compatibilism  moral responsibility.  Dennett  free will  avoidance  autonomy  manipulation  avoidability  agents' histories
