Argues that morality, meaning and value remain intact even if we are not morally responsible for our actions. Most people assume that, even though some degenerative or criminal behavior may be caused by influences beyond our control, ordinary human actions are not similarly generated, but rather are freely chosen, and we can be praiseworthy or blameworthy for them. A less popular and more radical claim is that factors beyond our control produce all of the actions we perform. It is this hard determinist stance that Derk Pereboom articulates in Living Without Free Will. Pereboom argues that our best scientific theories have the consequence that factors beyond our control produce all of the actions we perform, and that because of this, we are not morally responsible for any of them. He seeks to defend the view that morality, meaning and value remain intact even if we are not morally responsible, and furthermore, that adopting this perspective would provide significant benefit for our lives. Review quote: ´- this is a very fine book. All philosophers who wish to argue that there are free human beings will need to deal with Pereboom´s objections. And it they cannot refute them, they can take comfort in Pereboom´s good, optimistic work on what a world without free will can be like.´ Oxford Academic Journals Table of contents: Acknowledgments; Introduction: Hard incompatibilism; 1.
