Timelessness and Human Responsibility

Show Summary Details

If human indeterministic choice is denied, and divine foreknowledge is compatible only with determinism, is human responsibility thereby compromised? This chapter argues ad hominem that if determinism is compatible with human responsibility in an atheistic universe then it is compatible with such responsibility in a deterministic theistic universe. Several arguments to the contrary are rebutted.

Keywords: choice; determinism; indeterminism; responsibility; universe
