Scott Clark recently posted the audio of a lecture given by Richard Muller (in September of 2010) on Jonathan Edwards' view of the freedom of the will. Muller argues that Edwards' view is a significant departure from the older Reformed orthodoxy--a very provocative thesis. I heard Muller briefly address this in a Ph.D. seminar (he was my dissertation advisor). But in this lecture he elaborates on this topic in some detail. The Q & A at the end is also very helpful.
Here’s the synopsis of Muller's lecture:
“Jonathan Edwards is often regarded as an epitome of Calvinism for his teaching on the freedom of will, though he was, in his own time and for a century after his death, a much-debated thinker whose views polarized Reformed circles. This lecture will concentrate on Edwards’ reception in Britain, which has received little attention despite its significance in the Reformed tradition. Concentrating on two historical contexts, Dr. Muller will consider the mixed reception of Edwards’ thought, note differences between Edwards and the older Reformed orthodoxy, and point to a parting of the ways in the Reformed tradition that took place largely in the eighteenth century.”
