The question of whether humans are free to make their own decisions has long been debated and it continues to be a controversial topic today. In Free Will: The Basicsreaders are provided with a clear and accessible introduction to this central but challenging philosophical problem. The questions which are discussed include: Does free will exist? Or is it illusory? Without free will do we have responsibility for our actions? Does the existence of free will explain why God permits suffering? What can recent developments in science tell us about the existence of free will? Because these questions are discussed without prejudicing one view over others and all technical terminology is clearly explained, this book is an ideal introduction to free will for the uninitiated.
