Book description

This book is about how we make choices. Drawing together evidence from 21st century chemistry to Victorian politics, enlightenment philosophy, Roman drama and beyond, it is a compelling hunt for the nature of free will. 'Meaty is one word for this dense little book. Rich and savory are others.' - Booklist '4/5: an accessible and well-written book...I urge you to read it and decide on these critical issues for yourself.' - Dr Susan Blackmore author of Conciousness, A Very Short Introduction(OUP) writing in BBC Focus Magazine 'This is an amazingly clear book about free will that points us in some interesting directions.' - Mary Midgley, Times Higher Educational Supplement 'very enjoyable - an important contribution to the dialogues on free will' - PsycCRITIQUES, American Psychological Association
