The free will topic is infested with a whole bunch of philosophical jargon words. No wonder the average layperson tends to avoid the topic. The terms, however, are nothing to be frightened of. They aren’t really difficult at all. Some philosophers, however, like to pull as much as they can out of jargon words, and even worse, define jargon words using a bunch of other jargon words. Simple, however, is almost always better. Lofty sounding words may make someone seem intelligent, and also scare people away from criticism, but it’s usually a smoke and mirrors act. That being said, sometimes jargon words are used to unpack a lot of information in which other words are insufficient for. Sometimes they are necessary.
