Is radical self-determination relevant to the theory of freedom? In other words, is it a constitutive moment of freedom? Frank Dettinger understands radical self-determination as being the faculty of an acting subject – in whose personal and characteristic nature decisions and actions are established – to self-determine in an independent act.
Is radical self-determination relevant to the theory of freedom? In other words, is it a constitutive moment of freedom? And is radical self-determination possible or indeed real? Frank Dettinger understands radical self-determination as being the faculty of an acting subject – in whose personal and characteristic nature decisions and actions are established – to self-determine in an independent act. The author provides impetus not only for the analytical-philosophical, but also the theological freedom debates. In the first instance, his work is intended as a contribution to the understanding of the freedom debate about itself. Secondly, its objective seeks to demonstrate the potential of an inter-disciplinary approach. The author reconstructs Luther's understanding of freedom by the precise application of analytical-philosophical freedom systematics and in this way makes it accessible to argumentative examination.
