Shortly after, he killed his father Laius and later married his mother Jocasta. For life is unpredictable and even when we may feel like we know what were doing we really have no idea. The ancient Greeks believed that their gods could see the future, and that certain people could access this information. Us humans need some of those to survive and the earth realizes that and created enough for us along with the other animals that inhabited this planet.

There is a risk of trivializing a question, cutting it down to shape so that it can be analyzed quantitatively. The choices men make might appear to be made with little to no outside influence, but in making these decisions, we sometimes forget the consequences that come with them, something that is lost on Ahab as he places everyone and everything in jeopardy in the belief that he is fulfilling his destiny. There is no sense of a middle way, of some other possibility, and so people have argued over the centuries, yes, free will, no, fate. The notion is actually ancient in origin. If he had not been abandoned, Oedipus would have known his real parents and the prophecy would not have come true.

Free Will in Medea and Macbeth Throughout both Medea and Macbeth, there is a clear and heavy presence of the gods. What if human beings do not have free will, and are also not determined by fate, destiny or the will of God? How can the brain produce thought but also be affected by thinking? Through all three of these characters, Shakespeare has made a point to show that indifference towards fate leads towards permanent consequences.

On the other hand, most people believe that they are free to choose what to do, from the simplest to the more complex: should I drink coffee with sugar or sweetener? Their is no other species that lives by the laws we live by for a specific reason. This prophecy, as warned by the Oracle of Apollo at Delphi, was absolute and would inevitably come to pass.
