Editorial Reviews


"...this is an interesting and well-researched book. We believe that many sections
of the text might be useful for undergraduate or graduate forensic classes in psychology, law and psychology, criminal justice, or criminal policy. They may also be of interest to other
professionals involved with the legal system such as lawyers, judges, policy makers, and
social workers. Forensic psychologists might refer attorneys to various sections of the book. The second half of the book might be particularly suitable for persons interested in or working in mental health and forensic fields." --PsycCRITIQUES, American Psychological Association

"..a most illuminating treatise on the complex topic of free will and (moral) responsibility. - Professor Herschel Prins, Medicine, Science and the Law"

"This is a fascinating, well-written book. The author explains difficult concepts such as free will, moral responsibility, and causal determinism clearly and thoroughly. The ideas he proposes are thought provoking and important." - Doody's Reviews

"This is an absorbing book, well written and lucid. Its clarity is borne of the authors keen sense of the issues and a prodigious knowledge of the philosophical literature concerning morality...John Callender has produced a rich and useful torch in the often dark and confusing world of moral responsibility within mental health." - Journal of Forensic Psychiatry & Psychology

"This book is a real treat. John Callender offers an engaging and rigorous account of how science and morality meet, addressing important issues which should be thought about and discussed well beyond academic circles." - The British Journal of Psychiatry
