Nonreality of Free Will by Richard Double

Book Description

This monograph offers a new argument concerning free will and moral responsibility. Double identifies hierarchical compatibilism - a view espoused by such philosophers as Frankfurt, Neely, Watson, Levin, and Dennett - as the most plausible account of free will, showing how compatibilism can be successfully defended against incompatibilist objections. He goes on, however, to demonstrate that even the compatibilist account of free will ultimately faces insuperable objections, and concludes that free will is an essentially incoherent notion.

Books By Author Richard Double

Beginning Philosophy by Richard Double Beginning Philosophy, Paperback (February 1999)

This book is an introduction to the fundamental problems and questions of philosophy. Its chapters cover logic and reasoning, the theory of knowledge, the nature of the external world, the mind/body problem, ethics, free will, the existence of God, and the problem of evil.

Metaphilosophy and Free Will by Richard Double Metaphilosophy and Free Will, Hardback (August 1996)

In this text, the author looks at the contending schools of thought on the problem of free will. He argues that the free will problem is intractable because free will theorists are separated by metaphilosophical differences in the way they view the philosophical enterprise itself.
