No, by not subjected, I meant that the agent is not forced to choose an specific option.
But who is, supposedly, "forced" to choose a specific option.
I certainly do not feel "forced" to choose any specific option.
Can you provide some examples of when I am, supposedly, "forced" to choose a specific option?
When you like an option and dislike another one. The first option causes you to choose it unless you deliberately choose the option you don't like.
Most of the time we choose an option we like which means we follow a chain of causality.
But none of what you said here shows WHERE i am "forced".
When I like one option over another, and then i CHOOSE that one, that does NOT mean that I was "forced" to choose it. I agree that the LIKING of that option might be partly or even fully what CAUSED me to choose that option, but there was NO "force". I did not HAVE TO choose that option. I could have dismissed both options altogether for example. Either way I was FREE to make a choice, was I not?
Also, it could be argued that even if one chooses the option that they do not like, then they are also following a chain of causality.
I agree that that causality is inevitable, I just do not, yet, see how I am being, supposedly, "forced", and thus I am not free.
