La libertà tra determinismo naturale e determinismo teologico: Il De servo arbitrio di Lutero

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The article analyzes the relationship between natural and historical determinism on the one hand and theological determinism on the other, as Luther deals in De servo arbitrio, starting with his concrete experience of faith. The article seeks to show how the idea of Luther's determinism is excluding the opposite idea of indetermination, so that he rejects the conception of freedom as libertas indifferentiae, but not the contingency of events and hence the self-determination of man. The article shows how Luther's position in this regard has been welcomed by Leibniz and Hegel.
