Free Will McG I 135
McGinn: freedom/determinism/Davidson / D-theory: thesis: prior world states are a causally sufficient condition for a specific decision. Freedom is then a certain kind of causal series, namely those in which an appropriate amount of mental precursors occurs.
  Then freedom means, that desires and beliefs have causal effects.
McGinnVsDavidson: his idea of the freedom of action makes no sense, because it looks as if it would be of the same type as any other causality.
