The Argument of Luck vs the Consequence Argument. Sekatskaya M.

These arguments pursue opposite goals. The argument of luck tends to show that if determinism is true, then our actions are the result of luck, contingency, and, therefore, free will simply dissolves into contingency and, therefore, disappears. The consequence argument claims that if indeterminism is true, then the facts of the past, along with the laws of nature, determine the future. But since we do not determine the facts of the past and the laws of nature, therefore, we do not determine our future, and therefore we do not have the free will. In her report, Maria Secatskaya tries to find a way out of this situation.
