The Consequences of Determinism: A Theory of Determinism Volume 2

Ted Honderich

Abstract

This text, originally Part Three of the single-volume hardback edition, poses the following question: if determinism is true, and free will an illusion, what are the consequences? The book maintains that both of the entrenched and traditional doctrines about the consequences of determinism, compatibilism, and incompatibilism, are provably false, and formulates a new answer to the question.

Keywords: determinism, free will, compatibilism, incompatibilism
