We are inclined to think that the best hope for either libertarianism or compatibilism lies in a deep, detailed understanding of human decision making, of the process of an agent recognizing reasons for doing something and acting on those reasons. Which view will such an account favor? We aren't sure. Indeed, there are two ideas that we have not even mentioned. Is responsibility for one's decisions and actions tied as closely to free choice as our discussion has tended to assume? Starting from examples in which we fully assent to some decision we have made even when, unbeknownst to us, we could not have reached any other decision, some philosophers (Frankfurt , for example) urge that what matters for responsibility is that we are happy with our decision, not whether it was free in the sense that we could have decided otherwise.
The libertarian can now give some content, at least, to her idea that if a decision is causally determined, it could not have been otherwise. What she would mean is something like this: Contrary to what the definition of 'couldcp' demands, if a decision were causally determined and if exactly the same causes were operating, then exactly the same decision would always result. If so, then even though the decision couldnp have been otherwise, it is not the case that it couldcp have been otherwise.

We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason. Jack Handey 1â Introduction In chapter 2, we considered the worry that we cannot know anything beyond our own minds. We were unable to address this worry completely and so put it aside as a puzzling paradox, refusing to concede that we really don't know anything about the physical world around us, yet not able to completely justify our belief that we do know about the world around us.
