Abstract
The concept of voluntariness is based on several assumptions that cannot be taken for granted, as they are deeply contested among philosophers. This thesis will focus on the relationship between the possible options and the voluntariness of the action chosen by the agent.

These
definitions will be understood in the light of several other complex concepts, namely freedom, responsibility, threats and force. With the help of examples previously used by Nozick and Olsaretti, but also through an example created by the author of... (More)
The concept of voluntariness is based on several assumptions that cannot be taken for granted, as they are deeply contested among philosophers. This thesis will focus on the relationship between the possible options and the voluntariness of the action chosen by the agent.

These

Hopefully this comparative study of two different concepts of voluntariness will shed some light into the difficult task of defining an abstract concept such as voluntariness. (Less)
