Libertarianism is a philosophical position in metaphysics with respect to free will and determinism. It entails the belief that human beings possess free will, that free will is incompatible with determinism, and that determinism is false. Metaphysical libertarianism is discussed and defended by several leading philosophers, such as Peter van Inwagen, Robert Kane, Timothy O'Connor, Laura Ekstrom, Robert Nozick or John Searle.
