Overview

This comprehensive reference provides an exhaustive guide to current scholarship on the perennial problem of Free Will--perhaps the most hotly and voluminously debated of all philosophical problems. While reference is made throughout to the contributions of major thinkers of the past, the emphasis is on recent research. The essays, all previously unpublished, combine the work of established scholars with younger thinkers who are beginning to make significant contributions. Taken as a whole, the Handbook provides an engaging and accessible roadmap to the state of the art thinking on this enduring topic.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is simply a terrific book. Anyone with an interest in what (analytic) philosophy has done with the perennial question of free will during the last forty years will find it invaluable. If the other books in the new Oxford Handbook Series are remotely as good as this one, Oxford has really outdone itself."—Philosophia Christi

"The Handboook of Free Will is a splendid addition to the recent Oxford Handbook series.... The scope of the project is impressive, and no work of this scope on the free will problem can be found anywhere else. The volume is much welcome."—International Journal for Philosophy of Religion
