Reviews

'... this is a very fine book. All philosophers who wish to argue that there are free human beings will need to deal with Pereboom's objections. And it they cannot refute them, they can take comfort in Pereboom's good, optimistic work on what a world without free will can be like.' Oxford Academic Journals
"This is an impressive book, which can be recommended to all philosophers interested in the problems surrounding freedom and moral responsibility. It covers a lot of ground..." Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"This book is well written and as easy to read as the intricacy of its argument permits. It is clear, careful, insightful, and well-informed, a good guide to the philosophical literature on the many issues it discusses. Anyone concerned with those issues will profit greatly from reading it. Journal of Ethics
