Must introduces necessary condition, correct? I diagrammed the question as follows: GP: Both the consequences and the motives of human actors have bearing on moral worth of those actions. C & M —-> MWA not MWA —> not C or not M Premise: one cannot be a moral agent without desiring to conform to a principle MA —-> CP Not CP —-> not MA P: ?? C: to be a moral agent, one must have free will MA —> FW Argument jumps from conform to a principle to one must have free will, conforming to a principle requires free will (CP —-> FW) Is my thought process correct here? Thanks!
