  1. Free Will, Self‐Creation, and the Paradox of Moral Luck.Kristin M. Mickelson - forthcoming - Midwest Studies in Philosophy.
    This essay outlines a new solution to the paradox of moral luck, the source paradox solution, which both explains why the paradox arises and why moral luck does not exist. To make my case, I highlight a few key connections between the paradox of moral luck and two related problems, namely the problem of free will and determinism and the paradox of self-creation. Piecing together intuitions, arguments, and insights from recent work on each of these three problems, I argue that (...)

  • (In)Compatibilism.Kristin M. Mickelson - forthcoming - In Joseph Campbell (ed.), Companion to Free Will. New York: Wiley-Blackwell.
    This chapter offers the reader some useful tools for identifying and assessing the distinct views and debates currently associated with the terms ‘compatibilism’ and ‘incompatibilism’. It begins with a discussion of the two relata of free-will (in)compatibilism, namely the free-will relatum (§2) and the determinism relatum (§3). The next section (§4) provides an overview of five relations which are commonly said to hold (or not hold) between these relata: conceptual (in)compatibility, logical (in)compatibility, logical (in)consistency, metaphysical (in)compatibility, and metaphysical (in)compossibility. In (...)

  • Motte-and-Bailey Incompatibilism.Kristin M. Mickelson - manuscript
    In this essay, I argue that free-will incompatibilism is a motte-and-bailey doctrine and that fallacious motte-and-baileying permeates the contemporary free-will literature. Moreover, I provide a preemptive response to those who would insist that such charges, even if technically correct, are philosophically insignificant or uninteresting. I begin (s2) by identifying the motte thesis associated with the term “incompatibilism”, and then (s3) turn to the bailey thesis which goes by the same name. Next (s4), I offer textual evidence for the empirical claim (...)

  • Hard Times For Hard Incompatibilism.Kristin M. Mickelson - manuscript
    Hard incompatibilism is the conjunction of two incompatibilist views about free will: (1) deterministic incompatibilism, the view that deterministic evolution of the natural world (as described by the doctrine of determinism) makes it impossible for humans to exercise free will , and (2) indeterministic incompatibilism, the view that indeterministic evolution of the natural world makes it impossible for humans to exercise free will. The term “hard incompatibilism” was coined by Derk Pereboom, and he continues to be the view’s most influential (...)
