From the Publisher'This book presents four recent positions on free will in a clear and accessible way, along with their authors' responses to each other's position.? ( Metaphilosophy , January 2009)
"There is no better introduction to the debate available. This is a book that will be read with profit by anyone who opens it, specialist or newcomer." Neil Levy, Metapsychology Online Reviews
"Four Views on Free Will is an excellent introduction to the current debate regarding one of the most seductive of the perennial topics in philosophy. It is an especially welcome addition to Blackwell's "Great Debates in Philosophy" series. The goal is the presentation of a considerably more dialogical and engaging introduction to the main issues in an important domain of philosophical inquiry than can typically be achieved in a standard monograph. Four Views succeeds admirably in achieving this worthwhile goal." Daniel Speak, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"This gem of a book provides a wonderfully accessible introduction to the free will debate by leading proponents of four major views, as well as a front row seat to a dynamic, up-to-the minute philosophical conversation."
Dana Nelkin, University of California at San Diego
"This four-way debate is a fine addition to the Great Debates in Philosophy series. Four Views on Free Will is ideal for advanced undergraduate courses on free will."
Alfred R. Mele, Florida State University
'The four main essays are clearly written and argued, and the shorter articles are very useful as illustrations of how philosophers debate. Highly recommended.?
