Description

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.
