A subject that has defied clear-thinking for years is finally unravelled by analysing different views of freedom, causation, and the will. Drawing on Psychology and Philosophy, Peter Baron contrasts ancient and modern thinkers from Hume and Locke to Sartre and Honderich to produce a definitive guide, pitched just right.
Peter Baron read Politics, Philosophy and Economics at New College, Oxford and afterwards obtained an MLitt for a research degree in Hermeneutics at Newcastle University. He qualified as an Economics teacher in 1982, and from 2006-12 taught ethics at Wells Cathedral School in Somerset. In 2007 he set up a philosophy and ethics community dedicated to enlarging the teaching of philosophy in schools by applying the theory of multiple intelligences to the analysis of philosophical and ethical problems. So far over 400 schools have joined the community and over 10,000 individuals use his website every month.

We welcome contributions and suggestions so that our community continues to flourish and expand.
