Alternative Frankfurt-style counterexamples to the principle of alternative possibilities

Pacific Philosophical Quarterly 83 (2):131–147 (2002)
Abstract
In this paper, I assume that if we have libertarian freedom, it is located in the power to choose and its exercise. Given this assumption, I then further assume a version of the Principle of Alternative Possibilities which states that an agent is morally responsible for his choice only if he could have chosen otherwise. With these assumptions in place, I examine three recent attempts to construct Frankfurt‐style counterexamples to PAP. I argue that all fail to undermine the intuitive plausibility of PAP
