Abstract

In this chapter, I review recent work on neuroscientifi c threats to free will. What is it for something to threaten free will? Consider, fi rst, an apparent threat. You are walking
in the dark, and a shadow looms in the distance. It certainly appears threatening, but
you are not sure. What do you do? You consider the source of the threat (the thing
casting the shadow, and you attempt to discover whether the threat is actual (an
attacker) or merely apparent (a tree). And if the threat is actual, you attempt to discern
what epistemic and behavioral changes are required of you.
