Jonathan Edwards presents the eighteenth-century’s most sophisticated case against libertarian freedom. He seeks to show, not merely that there is no experience of such freedom, but that the very notion of such freedom is internally incoherent. It is argued that there are reasons to regard Edwards as a philosopher in the British tradition, but that there significant differences between his necessitarianism and that of Hobbes.
