We do this all the time, but there are conceptual challenges purporting to show that attributable agency, and specifically one of its most important subspecies, human free agency, is incoherent. We address these challenges in a novel way: rather than merely rebutting specific arguments, we discuss a concrete model that we claim positively illustrates attributable agency in an indeterministic setting. The model, recently introduced by one of the authors in the context of artificial intelligence, shows that an agent with a sufficiently complex memory organization can employ indeterministic happenings in a meaningful way. We claim that these considerations successfully counter arguments against the coherence of libertarian (indeterminism-based) free will.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2015</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>A Chance for Attributable Agency</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
