In Leger Wood's essay "Determinism: Free Will Is an Illusion" he argues that humans are determined by some cause for all of our actions. The philosophical controversy of free will versus determination has been argued, discussed, written about and studied so much that it has become over done and monotonous. However, I do agree with Wood that humans are determined by some cause. Explanations for cause may be from evidence of introspective psychology, morals, religious issues, physical science, physiology, behavioral psychology and sociology. In this essay Wood gives us the libertarians', or free willists', explanations for free will, refutes them...
the laws of groups or mass action with individual free will."

In conclusion, I believe that Wood makes a strong argument in his essay "Determinism: Free Will Is an Illusion" that humans are determined in their actions. He not only disproves all possibilities that humans are free willed but also refutes the libertarians in all aspects of evidence. The aspects include introspective psychology, morals, religious issues, physical science, physiology, behavioral psychology and sociology. After having read Wood's essay I felt as though I had no other choice than to agree with him and believe that humans are always determined.
