Editorial Reviews

Review

Hard Luck is important and challenging. Some of the arguments it directs at varieties of compatibilism, especially those concerning control, should generate much useful discussion. And Levy brings empirical research to bear fruitfully on issues like the effects of unconscious attitudes. Steven Sverdlik, Mind [an] impressively wide-ranging book ... a no-frills and honest engagement with the issues by a creative philosopher, and it deserves to be read. Neal A. Tognazzini, Australasian Journal of Philosophy All in all, Hard Luck is good philosophy: informed, clear and controversial. Brian Jonathan Garrett, Philosophy in Review, (2013), no. 3

I will simply say that there is no scholar who is better equipped to handle the empirical and conceptual demands of questions about free will and responsibility than Neil Levy. His writing is crystal clear, with reasoning of course on par with that, and has a subtle sense of humor that makes reading him an absolute delight. Underrated genius only rivaled by Manuel Vargas' Building Better Beings.
