MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this paper is to point out the contribution of Jonathan Edwards to thought about the problem of freedom and determinism. This goal is pursued by an analysis of the early influences that were vital to the shaping of his thought, and by an attempt to give an accurate interpretation of his own doctrines. The source most used in the development of those doctrines has been Edwards's own work The Freedom of the Will. Other of Edwards's writings together with various secondary sources make up the remainder of works used. [TRUNCATED] 1
