Is Free Will Defined as a State of Mental Indifference to Options?
Some scholars believe that a will would be free if, and only if, it were in a state of complete indifference to its possible choices. In other words, if there were any influences upon a will, the will would no longer be free. They argue that any influence upon a will would determine it to a particular choice among its possible options. It is granted by all that many things influence the human will. So, if free will were dependent upon having no influences upon it, these scholars would have made their case that human do not have a free will.
