Compatibilist can accept:
P did A freely = P did A and P was free not to do A.
But for an account of "free not to do" the compatibilist proposes:
P was free not to do A = P's doing A was not compelled by external factors. (Negative Account)
(Stace's Gandhi example P 343b)
P was free not to do A = If P had chosen not to do A, P would not have done A. (Conditional Account) (Cf. Stace P 344b)
