Notes

Abstract: This thesis attempts to help remedy the deadlock in the debate on free will. To do so I have appealed to our intuitions regarding personal identity in the hope that they would better support one of the two competing theories, libertarianism and compatibilism. In this effort, I examine past theories of personal identity and, fmding them unsatisfactory, propose my own theory. Next, I connect personal identity to free will and ground the comparison by covering relevant aspects of philosophy of action. After this, I examine the root of the deadlock between libertarianism and compatibilism as well as recent outgrowths of the debate. Finally, I examine which theory is more coherent with my theory of personal identity and our intuitions on personal identity.
