I’ll explain my standpoint a bit first. On the one hand, I believe human will is part of the causal chain, being determined by previous events and, in turn, determining people’s decisions and actions. On the other, there are objects whose existence is a psychological one, which makes me lean toward the brain/mind dualism as well.
I am a compatibilist, but what I dislike about this concept is that it is regarded as some sort of theoretical manipulation of definitions, when in fact it represents the position of ancient philosophers, who actually coined the term of free will.
Translated as free will, the Latin phrase liberum arbitrium (coined by early European philosophers) literally means independent arbitrator, where the quality of arbitrator points out human beings’ faculty to decide on the worth of anything, whereas that of independent refers to their capacity of self-objectivation. Regarded as Man’s ability to cause his own course of actions by his own means, free will is defined as the control of instinctual and emotional behavior through reason.
