Taylor's Deliberation Argument (P 361a)

1.We can deliberate about whether we will do something.
2.If it is possible to know beforehand what we will do, then we cannot deliberate about whether we will do it.
3.If determinism is true, then it is possible to know beforehand what we will do.
So,4.Determinism is false.
