Abstract
In this paper, I attempt to suggest a possible Buddhist answer to
the problem of determinism and free will. The argument will be that
a Buddhist who is committed to mereological reductionism can give
a compatibilist account of the problem by drawing upon the distinction
between conventional and ultimate truth and Frankfurtian approach to
moral responsibility and free will.
I first introduce van Inwagens renowned Consequence Argument
for clarifying the problems at issue and briefly discuss possible options
a Buddhist can take regarding the argument.
I then summarize some previous attempts to provide a Buddhist
answer to the problem of determinism and free will, and lay out what
I consider to be right or wrong about their arguments. The
discussion mainly deals with Goodmans hard determinist approach, and
Siderits paleocompatibilism.
