Editorial Reviews

Review

"Pink's writing is complex, yet clear and crisp. He explains his theory of the will with precision and depth. His overall strategy is coherent and his argumentation is sophisticated." Clifford Williams, Philosophy in Review

"...an original and interesting book. Pink...offers a comprehensive, unified theory of a number of phenomena. His work should promote inquiry into some central (and some neglected) issues concerning freedom, action, decision, and practical rationality." Randolph Clarke, The Philosophical Review

Book Description

This book considers our freedom of action, and what sort of mind, or psychology, that freedom requires. It argues that our freedom of action depends on our being able to decide freely which actions we shall perform; in other words, to have freedom of action, we need a free will. It shows how our decisions to act are actions themselves, but with the special function of ensuring the rationality of the actions which they explain. The book seeks to resolve a range of problems about the nature both of action and rationality.
