10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By M. Desarro on April 1, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book gathers the most signifigant recent discussions of the free will problem. All of the fundamental positions-determinism, simple indeterminism, causal indeterminism and agent causation, are defended by their most eloquent proponents with novel and sophisticated approaches. With Contributors Nagel, Strawson, Dennett, Nozick, Chisholm, Ginet, Van Ingwagen, Clarke, Kane, Double, Fischer and Ravizza. I can honestly say that there is probably no better book for anyone interested in this old, tired debate.

Format: Paperback
This book is AWESOME!

The Free Will argument has nothing on the flawless logic presented in some of these essays.

Believing in Free Will after you read this is like believing in the
Easter Bunny.
