This monograph argues that there is a fundamental sense in which there is no such thing as free will or true moral responsibility. The author devotes the main body of the book in an attempt to explain why this is so. He examines various aspects of the "cognitive phenomenology" of freedom - the nature, causes and consequences of deep commitment to belief in freedom. In particular, he considers at length a number of problems that are raised by the suggestion that, if freedom were possible, believing oneself to be a free agent would be a necessary condition of being a free agent.
