Summary
Attempts to answer the question of whether it is possible to understand agency as realized within a world construed 'naturalistically', that is, in terms of causal relations among events and states of affairs, or whether an adequate ontology requires sui generis acts that are essentially voluntary, such as volitions or agent-causation. Berent Enç defends the possibility of naturalizing agency via a causal theory of action (CTA)
