Item description for Hobbes and Bramhall on Liberty and Necessity (Cambridge Texts in the History of Philosophy) by John Bramhall, Thomas Hobbes & V. C. Chappell...
Do human beings ever act freely, and if so what does freedom mean? Is everything that happens antecedently caused, and if so how is freedom possible? Is it right, even for God, to punish people for things they cannot help doing? This volume presents the famous seventeenth-century controversy in which Thomas Hobbes and John Bramhall debate these questions and others. The complete texts of their initial contributions to the debate are included, together with selections from their subsequent replies to one another and from other works of Hobbes.
