Item Description...
Why is debate over the free will problem so intractable? In this broad and stimulating look at the philosophical enterprise, Richard Double uses the free will controversy to build on the subjectivist conclusion he developed in The Non-Reality of Free Will (OUP 1991). Double argues that various views about free will--e.g., compatibilism, incompatibilism, and even subjectivism--are compelling if, and only if, we adopt supporting metaphilosophical views. Because metaphilosophical considerations are not provable, we cannot show any free will theory to be most reasonable. Metaphilosophy and Free Will deconstructs the free will problem and, by example, challenges philosophers in other areas to show how their philosophical argumentation can succeed.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Determinist philosophers vs. freewillist moralists  Mar 29, 2002
Completely confirms what I observed in reading other books about free will and determinism: determinists are critical philosophical theorists who seek a clear and true description of the world, while freewill advocates are essentially moralists rather than theoretical philosophers.

This is the most insightful book about the debate because it explains the different kinds of motives driving determinists and freewillists.

Determinists, including the author, begin their thinking on a foundation of "What model of the world makes sense intellectually, logically, and rationally, and is comprehensible?"

Freewillists begin their thinking on a foundation of "My goal is to protect, preserve, and defend free will, to prevent the collapse of ethics and society".

The author defines four approaches or motives, but these two are the most basic: trying to scientifically model reality, or trying to protect, preserve, and prop up societal ethics.

My this site info area lists other interesting books about determinism, but this may be the only book of its kind, examining the motives of the debaters and showing how they enter the debate for two essentially different reasons.

I strongly recommend adding this book to your free will and determinism collection. It truly unlocks the other books and helps examine the author's motivating programme, mission, or agenda.
