ADVANTAGES

As Fischer points out, an agent could possess both guidance andregulative control, but the two can come apart. On a view likeFischer's or Frankfurt's, it is only guidance control that is necessaryfor moral responsibility. Frankfurt's attack on PAP (see section 4.2)prompted many contemporary compatibilists to develop accounts ofcompatibilist freedom that make no appeal to regulative control asmodeled on a Garden of Forking Paths. Such accounts of guidance controlfix solely on Source models of control, showing that an agent plays aspecial sort of role in the actual bringing about of her freely willedactions. Other compatibilists retained the classical compatibilistcommitment to show that determined agents are able to act withregulative control.
