Free Will

72. Free Will

The notion of free will is a fundamental concept for humans. To be able to choose to make right or wrong choices is essential to who we are. It is only then that we are able to take the right actions or learn from the wrong actions. What kind of freedom do humans have in making conscious choices (whether right or wrong)? How is free will portrayed by the authors of the Hebrew Bible, Homer(the Iliad), Aeschylus(the Oresteia), Sophocles(Oedipus the rex, Antigone), and Plato(The Last Days of Socrates)? Using the Hebrew Bible and any two Greek authors of books listed above, write a thesis-based essay in which you compare and/or contrast your three texts on the concept of free will.
