Abstract

In the pages of this journal, Derk Pereboom and I have debated the soundness of his Four-Case Manipulation Argument for incompatibilism (Pereboom, 2008; McKenna, 2008). In this paper, I develop further my hard-line compatibilist reply to him. My reply takes a hard-line insofar as it involves resisting the attractive intuitive judgment that a radically manipulated agent is not free and morally responsible.
