About the Author

John Martin Fischer is Professor of Philosophy, University of California at Riverside. His previous publications include The Metephysics of Death (1993), Ethics: Problems and Principles (1991), and Moral Responsibility (1986).


"This is an excellent book, a first--rate contribution to the literature. Its combination of thoroughness and accessibility is rare in the literature on free will. The arguments are skillfully crafted and sometimes stunningly ingenious." Alfred Mele, Davidson College "This is a delightful and masterful philosophical work. What Fischer has to say about freedom and moral responsibility is always interesting and plausible and often persuasive. He presents the issues clearly and elegantly and advances considerably the discussion on them." Michael Zimmerman, University of North Carolina
