Free Will as Moral Obligation

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”  These words attributed to Victor Frankl assume there is such a thing as free will.  Whether we share this assumption or not, it is critical that we pretend there is free will as we face and address the suffering in our world.  Our moral imagination depends on (the illusion of) free will.
