free will

if then?

Only a reflective action is free — I wish this was my conclusion, but it’s Habermas. I agree and go the next step.  I say, if Habermas, then free decision requires options. Free-will is affirmed in function when there is a choice. Choice becomes skewed in some measure when it depends on the person’s exposure to options — you cannot choose from options you do not know exist.  Therein comes the notion of determinism.
So, there may be determinism in free will.
Next: Habermas on the rocks.  Danke Jürgen!
