About: A question that has taxed the best minds of all civilizations through the ages: Do we have free will? What IS free will? What is the reality of causation? If God knows what we will do, what is the point? Isn't he controlling our actions? If so, how can he judge us when we are mere puppets? The positions of the Asharis, Wahhabis, Maturidis and Mu'tazzila are presented with surprising results... A masterful introduction for anyone interested in Islamic and non-Islamic philosophy, the history of thought or simply the 'Big Questions'.
