Rationality + Consciousness = Free Will

The Introduction introduces the problem of free will and responsibility, and the book's contention that what we do is not the inexorable playing out of the role in life given to us by our genes and circumstances. It refers to the compatibilist approach to free will, and to Haldane's argument in favour of free will. It then outlines the argument of the book.

Keywords:   rationality, consciousness, indeterministic, free will, plausible reasoning, gestalts, responsibility, retribution
