I think that in this book [Horst's] contribution to those who wish to understand the latest developments in various areas of psychology is highly valuable. And his detailed exposition of theories shows precisely how models work in psychology. - Bernard Berofsky, Columbia University, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews.
Start with a mix of powers, like mine or Mumford's, and Giere's perspectivism. Mix in a great deal of Horst. The result is a lovely pluralist view of scientific models and laws, a view that meshes neatly with the matching doctrine of Cognitive Pluralism that Horst develops from his detailed case studies and that leaves ample room for -- but does not force -- free will.

Steven Horst's Laws, Mind, and Free Will has both the clarity, scope, and scholarship needed for an excellent text and the original analysis appropriate to a significant contribution to the literature, especially on the topic of laws of nature. It will reward readers in philosophy of mind and cognitive science and provide advanced students with an excellent treatment of important literature.
