Description

Did the Buddha Teach Free Will? Monks, these two slander the Tathagata. Which two? He who explains a discourse whose meaning needs to be inferred as one whose meaning has already been fully drawn out. And he who explains a discourse whose meaning has already been fully drawn out as one whose meaning needs to be inferred. (6) The title of Federman's article raises the question, "What Kind of Free Will Did the Buddha Teach?" This question suggests that the Buddha taught a certain kind of "free will." Federman's article attempts to substantiate that suggestion. The Tathagata (the Buddha) never discussed "free will," but he did discuss fate, chance, karma, "dependent origination" or "conditioned arising" (the thesis that all conditioned phenomena originate or arise in dependence upon previous conditions), (7) the efficacy of volition, effort, choice, and action, and a host of things that presuppose a kind of free will. But as the s?tra quoted above suggests, explicit and implicit accounts of the Buddha's thought are very different things.
