within stimulating and thought-provoking book, mcdougal defends the thesis that free might is incompatible with determinism. He disputes the view that determinism is necessary for ethical responsbility. Finding no valid reason for accepting determinism, but thinking ethical responsibility become indubitable, he concludes that determinism is rejected.

Editorial Reviews


«This is an essential guide, and no one enthusiastic about problems which touch in the free might will want to ignore it.»--Ethics
«An acutely intelligent, resourceful, and rigorous book. It is filled with delicate, sophisticated, imaginative, and often innovative argumentation. Van Inwagen systematically methodically puts his finger on the operative intuitions of incompatibilism, in which he presents incompatibilism as forcefully as has ever been done.»--The Philosophical Review
