Gnome07 Posted May 4 Report Share Posted May 4 Quote Agent causation, or Agent causality, is an idea in philosophy which states that a being who is not an event—namely an agent—can cause events (particularly the agent's own actions). I was researching the general views on the subject of free will, when this made me think of Objectivism. It made me wonder whether the O'ist view would fit under this, as it embraces both free will and causality, while dismissing the need for physical indeterminism such as the Epicurean Swerve or Quantum Mechanics. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agent_causation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarianism_(metaphysics) Thoughts?
