How physics makes us free, J.T. Ismael

Summary
Most philosophical books on free will start by saying "physics tells us that all of our actions are determined by fundamental laws of nature (perhaps with some quantum randomness thrown in)." Built around these simple remarks is a highly articulated landscape of philosophical responses to the challenge physics is supposed to present to human freedom. Ismael aims to give a better account of what physics tells us, the parts that are settled and the parts that are unsettled--, Provided by Publisher
