Reviews

"New Waves in Philosophy of Action is an excellent collection of the most recent and innovative work in the field of philosophy of action, which includes the topics of free will and moral responsibility. The editors have brought together several rising stars , and they have taken care to cover the most intriguing controversies currently unfolding. This would make a wonderful book for a graduate class. It will certainly become required reading for scholars working in this field." - Michael McKenna, University of Arizona, USA

"This is an excellent collection of papers on action theory. I especially like the fact that the essays are by young philosophers whose ideas will shape discussion for years to come." - Storrs McCall, McGill University, Canada

"This volume is impressive and refreshing testimony to the liveliness of a new generation of philosophers of action - both in advancing well established debates and in helpfully extending the boundaries of the subject." - John Bishop, The University of Auckland, New Zealand
