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 The essays, all previously unpublished, combine the work of established scholars with younger thinkers who are beginning to make significant contributions.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
"The emphasis throughout is on work done on free will in the past several decades, and the book is quite thorough in its coverage of the many recent developments and modifications of the traditional positions. A vital resource for anyone interested in an up-to-date survey of the free will debate, this book belongs in every college and university library."—CHOICE
