Human choice and freedom are philosophical issues -- in regard to whether and how they exist.

The scientific revolution prompted two key questions -- 1) do we know reality and if so how, and 2) do humans have choice, are they free to choose? The question of human freedom arises because -- since humans were part of nature they had to be subject to its deterministic laws but if they were, then it followed that they could not be free.
