Free Will Part 2 of 4: Maybe?

Following our look at the religious approach to free will, we discuss the secular approach.

In the secular thinking, it doesn’t necessarily take the stance that there is no god, but rather just doesn’t consider god as part of the question. We delve into the minds and theories of determinism which holds that all actions and decisions are determined by outside forces, libertarianism (not necessarily like the political philosophy) which theorizes that human action is strictly driven by free will, and compatibilism that supposes that the world we live in is a really a mix of the two.
