In this stimulating and thought-provoking book, the author defends the thesis that free will is incompatible with determinism. He disputes the view that determinism is necessary for moral responsbility. Finding no good reason for accepting determinism, but believing moral responsibility to be indubitable, he concludes that determinism should be rejected.

Industry Reviews

"This is an important book, and no one interested in issues which touch on the free will will want to ignore it."--Ethics
"An extremely intelligent, resourceful, and rigorous book. It is filled with subtle, sophisticated, imaginative, and often ingenious argumentation. Van Inwagen systematically systematically puts his finger on the operative intuitions of incompatibilism, and he presents incompatibilism as forcefully
as has ever been done."--The Philosophical Review
