ARSP beiheft; 120


Nine papers from the 2009 IVR World Congress consider whether free will is an incoherent notion and its connection with punishment and retribution. The topics are defense of voluntariness, a theological perspective, infinite regress, bad luck and compatibilism, determinism and criminal responsibility, whether neuroscience undermines retributive justice, punishment and free will in legal theory and classical Christian theology, alternative possibilities, and what logic of action says about responsibility and free will. No index is provided. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
