Ferenc Huoranszki:
Compatibilism, Chance, and Freedom

Date and Venue of the lecture: 21h May 2015, 5.00 pm, Institute of Philosophy, Research Centre for the Humanities, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, 30. Országház Street, 2. floor, "Pepita" room.

Traditionally, compatibilism in metaphysics is a thesis about the possibility of free will in deterministic worlds. More recently, however, a new question about compatibility has been raised in philosophy of science. Is chance, i.e. single case objective probability, possible in deterministic worlds? In this talk I shall discuss the potential relevance of this latter type of question to the metaphysics of free will by investigating the connection between chances and abilities.
