Freedom and Alienation 1966–1968

Hywel David Lewis

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

This book is predominantly concerned with the notion of ‘freedom of choice’. Professor Hywel Lewis goes almost entirely against the prevailing fashion in philosophy of the time and will find little favour among those who most shape philosophical decision. Readers are reminded that while paying proper respect to science they should not become the slaves of it. Science does not, and possibly cannot, explain everything — why should it? That is what Lewis is particularly concerned to stress in this lecture, book and elsewhere in his work.
KEY WORDS: freedom, alienation, determinism, choice, identity, physical, events, self, will, punishment, responsibility, morality, intention, science, libertarian, motive, guilt
