Decisions, Abilities, Explanations, and Free Will

Alfred R. Mele

  • Provides devastating rebuttals of well-known objections to a naturalistic libertarian view of free will and defends an unusual but attractive theory of free will
  • Treats comprehensively philosophical problems about luck and control widely discussed in the literature on free will
  • Develops lucid, fruitful accounts of deciding to act, agents' abilities, and commitments of a causal theory of action explanation
  • Clarifies the connection between free will and moral responsibility
