  • Causation, Freedom and Determinism

    An Attempt to Solve the Causal Problem Through a Study of its Origins in Seventeenth-Century Philosophy

    By Mortimer Taube

    This book, first published in 1936, divides into roughly two parts: a re-examination of historical material; and a positive theory of causation suggested by the results of this re-examination.

    The Essential Element in Human Action

    By Alan Donagan

    This book, first published in 1987, investigates what distinguishes the part of human behaviour that is action (praxis) from the part that is not. The distinction was clearly drawn by Socrates, and developed by Aristotle and the medievals, but key elements of their work became obscured in modern…

  • Free Action

    By A.I. Melden

    That a science of human conduct is possible, that what any man may do even in moments of the most sober and careful reflection can be understood and explained, has seemed to many a philosopher to cast doubt upon our common view that any human action can ever be said to be truly free. This book,…

  • Free Will

    A Defence Against Neurophysiological Determinism

    By John Thorp

    The problem of freedom and determinism is one of the most enduring, and one of the best, problems in philosophy. One of the best because it so tenaciously resists solution while yet always seeming urgent, and one of the most enduring because it has always been able to present itself in different…

    Negative and Positive Conceptions

    By Yıldız Silier

    A Study of Rival Conceptions of Man

    By R.L. Franklin

    This book, first published in 1968, examines the complicated issues which surround the problem of freewill. Although it reaches a libertarian conclusion, its focus is largely on other questions.

  • The Refutation of Determinism

    An Essay in Philosophical Logic

    By M.R. Ayers

    Perhaps everyone who can think has the concept of possibility, but no one understands it. The metaphysical theory of Determinism is a symptom of this lack of understanding, and the inconclusiveness of its opponents’ arguments indicates that the lack is universal. In this book, first published in…
