Four Views on Free Will (Blackwell, 2007). This interactive work presents leading proponents of four major views on the question of free will. The debate focuses on the concepts and interactions of free will, moral responsibility, and determinism. The book first presents the viewpoint of each philosopher—libertarianism, compatibilism, hard incompatibilism (Pereboom), and revisionism—and then the philosophers respond directly to one another’s arguments. The book is an up-to-date account of contemporary positions on a central question in Western philosophy.
