Will, Choice, and Freedom

Two scholars speak about themes of lasting philosophical and literary interest, humankind’s widely ranging understanding of freedom and responsibility. First, Irene Samuel talks about the poetry of John Milton, especially Paradise Lost.

In the second segment [11:50], Alvin Goldman addresses the philosophical problems of freedom, fatalism, and determinism.

At the time of these interviews, Samuel was professor of English at Hunter College, City University of New York.

Goldman, a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1981-82), was professor of philosophy at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
