Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Free Will Delusion is a remarkable book that covers an enormous range of positions, ideas, and writers on free will and moral responsibility, which is already impressive. But to take this often esoteric material and form it into a book that is powerful, provocative, clear, accessible, and a joy to read: that is a singular achievement." -- Prof. Bruce Waller "A terrific book... bold and provocative, yet rigorously argued... Miles maintains a hard incompatibilist and anti-utilitarian position against the most prominent defenders of a belief in free will strong enough to support moral responsibility, including Kane, Searle, Dennett, Watson, Fischer, Frankfurt, P. F. Strawson, and the free will illusionist Saul Smilansky... The Free Will Delusion is passionate, compassionate, and an exciting read. Highly recommended" -- Dr Richard Double * both published by OUP * "In this impassioned critique of views on free will, Miles decisively rebuts the morally problematic claim that people are to blame for who they become, lighting the way toward more fair and effective responses to wrong-doing and social inequality." -- Tom Clark * Center for Naturalism *
