Free will and the phenomenology of agency

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Otherpeer-review


For most of the twentieth Century, questions concerning free will were approached from the perspective of metaphysics and the philosophy of language, and the conscious aspects of free agency-what it’s like to experience oneself as a free agent-received cursory attention at best. Things have changed over the last decade or so, and there is now a lively and rapidly growing literature devoted to questions that lie at the interface between the phenomenology of agency and accounts of free will.
