Former Philosophy Department Head, Chris Maloney, publishes a new book titled, Akratic Compatibilism and All Too Human Psychology: Almost Enough is Free Will Enough. See the description below:
Do we have free will? The sum of history and the laws of science, including psychology, deterministically imply all events, including each of our actions. Is nature’s iron determination of deliberation compatible with the will’s freedom? The philosophers who answer affirmatively, both classical and current, assume that either the ultimate scientific laws or the grand historical record—or both—are merely contingent. Akratic Compatibilism and All Too Human Psychology: Almost Enough Is Free Will Enough argues, however, that they may be dead wrong about the modality of nature’s laws and history’s plasticity.
