Excerpt: Of course, free will can be used in various senses. If someone wants to use the phrase to refer to the obvious fact that we do what we desire to do (i.e. compatibilism), I can't imagine any serious objection. Here we are just using a word to describe a capacity that everyone agrees we have. Even libertarians agree that we have compatibilist freedom; they just want to insist that we also have freedom in another sense as well. Of course, those who use free will to refer to compatibilist freedom must beware of misleading people. There is a tendency to equate real freedom with libertarianism. So one who claims real freedom and interprets the phrase in a compatibilist sense may lead his hearers astray. And of course the very idea of a will which exists in some independence from the person, the intellect, and the emotions, is deeply problematic. See my Doctrine of the Knowledge of God for a more perspectival view of intellect, will, emotions, imagination, etc. So I prefer to speak of freedom in general rather than free will.
