Whether among Efficient Causes There Are Some That Operate without Necessity and with Freedom. Sect. 3. Whether There Could Be Any Freely Acting Efficient Cause If the First Cause Operated by Necessity; and, in General, Whether the Freedom of an Action Requires Freedom in All the Causes That Influence It, or Whether Freedom in One of Them Is Sufficient. --
Sect. 4. How Freedom or Contingency Abides in the Action of a Secondary Cause Despite the Concurrence of the First Cause and, Consequently, in What Sense It Is True That a Cause Is Free Which, Given That Everything Required for Acting Has Been Posited, Is Able to Act and Able Not to Act. Sect. 5. Which Faculty the Freedom of a Created Cause Formally Resides In. Sect. 6. How a Free Cause Is Determined by the Judgment of Reason. Sect. 7. What the Source or Origin of a Defect in a Free Cause Is. Sect. 8. Which Acts a Free Cause Has Indifference with Respect to. Sect. 9. Whether a Cause's Freedom Exists While It Is Actually Operating. Sect. 10. Whether Contingency in the Effects of the Universe Arises from the Freedom of the Efficient Causes, or Whether It Could Exist in the Absence of Such Freedom. Sect. 11. Whether There Is Any Good Reason for Numbering Fate among the Efficient Causes in the Universe. Sect. 12. Whether Chance and Fortune Should Be Numbered among the Efficient Causes.
