However, I feel (:D) that I should warn those who are have not read heavy academic works that this could be a challenging read. You might be better off getting Ortega's more popular general books on this topic. That being said if you like heavy intellectual reads then you will benefit greatly by engaging in this book. It may help clarify some topics of free will as it did for me.
Chapters 4 and 5 were for me the most interesting as it gets into the nitty gritty of free will and then climate change.
First, that a priori causality effectively renders human autonomy a scientific impossibility.
Secondly, he presents a convincingly theorized and extensively evidenced litany of the societal harms caused by freewill belief.
And third, he constructs a brilliantly constructed indictment of the belief as a major contributor to climate change denial. With this last revelation, Ortega's tract elevates our need to understand the causal nature of human will to a high and most urgent importance.
