Bounds of Freedom : Kant’s Causal Theory of Action (Hardcover) (Robert Greenberg)
About this item
Greenberg tackles one of Kant’s most difficult ideas: that we can be the cause of our actions only if the act of our will is free of everything that makes up who we are as individuals. This entails that our free will does not exist in the same time that includes our individuality.
The key is an analysis of Kant’s concept of an action, which includes the will as the cause of the action; so included, the causal connectionis àtemporal.
