I just posted the preliminary paper that I recently presented in my Freedom and Responsibility class to the web site. It concerns the two most common libertarian defenses of the principle of alternative possibilities against the seminal attack by Harry Frankfurt. The paper generally accepts the standard analytic framing of the debate, meaning that it probably grants all manner of wrong premises. I’ll be working on the same topic for my term paper, so I hope to untangle the mess then.

Of course, any thoughts on Frankfurt’s arguments against the necessity of alternative possibilities for moral responsibility would be of great interest to me.
