Editorial Reviews


"This book is a sophisticated and technical argument for compatibilism--the view that free will is compatible with certain forms of determinism.... Compatibilism is worthy of careful and detailed articulation, so Berofsky's contributions are welcome."--CHOICE

"Admirable, rigorously argued, and thoroughly researched."--Ishtiyaque Haji,Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
