Publisher Comments:

A BELIEF IN FREE WILL touches nearly everything that human beings value. It is difficult to think about law, politics, religion, public policy, intimate relationships, moralityand#8212;as well as feelings of remorse or personal achievementand#8212;without first imagining that every person is the true source of his or her thoughts and actions.
