Orangebird: You're from NZ? Kewl. Me too. Can you explain why you think freedom, in the senses described above, is necessary for responsibility? If a choice was truly 'free' in the sense of being undetermined by any kind of logical or internal/external factor, it would be completely random; in which case responsibility would be impossible, because how can a person be held responsible for a completely chaotic decision?
OK, I haven't read what you are referring to, but right off, I do believe this is a false dichotomy. either completely random or completely predetermined.
Let me figure out what you are pointing me to read.
