Metaphilosophy, January 2009). There are a number of common core arguments about the nature or existence of free will, and this volume takes an interactive look at the debate between four representative views.

John Martin Fischer is best known for the idea of "semicompatibilism" - the idea that moral responsibility is compatible with determinism, whether free will is or is not compatible. The concept is similar but not identical to Randolph Clarke's idea of a "narrow incompatibilist.
