In this book Jordan Howard Sobel looks at the many and varied approaches to this complex topic."--BOOK JACKET. "Sobel considers some problems for decision-making that arise if we grant the possibility that someone may be able to predict reliably what another agent will freely choose. Sobel's careful analysis lays a solid foundation for the study of free will and will interest all who are concerned with fated, determined, and predicted choices and how philosophical reflection about these can puzzle the will."--Jacket." ;
