The Problem Of Freedom And Necessity In Human Action
The Problem of freedom and necessity in human action is one of the most intriguing problems surfacing every now and then in the history of ideas. The present work is an attempt to formulate and critically examine three major approaches towards the understanding and resolution of the problem. These three approaches are presented in the form of three models listed as (1) the Mechanistic-casual model (2) the Free model and (3) the Freedom of the necessity model. B.F. Skinner, Jean-Paul Sartre, Karl Marks, have been discussed as representative thinkers respectively as representative thinkers respectively while presenting and examining the models. In the process, the ground is sufficiently cleared for the view that the Freedom of the necessity model seems to be more satisfactory than the other two models in the understanding and resolution of the problem. The work unfolds as a study of man in society and nature along the axis of a central problem of freedom and necessity.
