Fellow Flickers, I would like to announce the publication of Exploring the Illusion of Free Will and Moral Responsibility (edited by yours truly). This collection of new essays explores the philosophical and scientific arguments for free will skepticism and their implications. It includes original contributions by Susan Blackmore, Thomas W. Clark, Mark Hallett, John-Dylan Haynes and Michael Pauen, Ted Honderich, Neil Levy, Thomas Nadelhoffer and Daniela Goya Tocchetto, Shaun Nichols, Derk Pereboom, Susan Pockett, Maureen Sie, Saul Smilansky, Galen Strawson, Manuel Vargas, Benjamin Vilhauer, and Bruce Waller.
I would like to thank all the contributors for their time and hard work--many thanks! I would also like to thank Tamler Sommers for his gracious endorsement of the book:
“Just twenty years ago, skepticism about free will and moral responsibility was a position that few in the philosophical community took seriously. That has changed, thanks in large part to the work of the authors in this volume. Gregg D. Caruso has collected contributions from the most prominent proponents and critics of free will skepticism. His insightful and engaging introduction sets the stage beautifully for philosophers and non-philosophers alike. Anyone interested in this topic, which is of such profound importance, should buy this book.” —Tamler Sommers, University of Houston
