Carolina Sartorio argues that basically the particular motives of our behaviour topic to our freedom. even if this easy view of freedom clashes with so much theories of accountability, together with the main widespread 'actual series' theories at the moment on supply, Sartorio argues for its fact. the foremost, she claims, lies in an accurate figuring out of the function performed through causation in a view of that sort. Causation has a few vital gains that make it a responsibility-grounding
relation, and this contributes to the good fortune of the view. additionally, whilst brokers act freely, the particular motives are richer than they seem like first and foremost sight; specifically, they mirror the brokers' sensitivity to purposes, the place this comprises either the life of exact purposes and the absence of other
(counterfactual) purposes. So performing freely calls for extra explanations and particularly complicated motives, in place of fewer reasons and easier motives, and is appropriate with these reasons being deterministic. The ebook connects various debates, the only on causation and the only at the challenge of unfastened will, in new and illuminating ways.
