    Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 20.99 US$ 18.05

    Mele clarifies the central issue in the philosophical debate about free will and moral responsibility, criticizes various influential contemporary theories about free will, and develops two overlapping conceptions of free will - one for readers who are convinced that free will is incompatible with determinism (incompatibilists), and the other for readers... more...

  • Irrationalityby Alfred R. Mele

    Oxford University Press 1993; US$ 32.50 US$ 27.95

    The author demonstrates that certain forms of irrationality - incontinent action and self-deception - which many philosophers have rejected as being logically or psychologically impossible, are indeed possible. more...

  • Effective Intentionsby Alfred R. Mele

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 27.99 US$ 24.07

    Do your intentions have no effect on your actions? Is free will an illusion? Some scientists say yes. Alfred Mele shows that these claims are not justified by the data and that there is weighty evidence of the existence of effective conscious intentions or the power of conscious will. more...

  • Springs of Actionby Alfred R. Mele

    Oxford University Press 1992; US$ 144.99 US$ 124.69

    Tackling some central problems in the philosophy of action, Mele constructs an explanatory model for intentional behavior, locating the place and significance of such mental phenomena as beliefs, desires, reason, and intentions in the etiology of intentional action. Part One comprises a comprehensive examination of the standard treatments of the relations... more...

  • Self-Deception Unmaskedby Alfred R. Mele

    Princeton University Press 2000; US$ 37.50 US$ 30.00

    Self-deception raises complex questions about the nature of belief and the structure of the human mind. In this book, Alfred Mele addresses four of the most critical of these questions: What is it to deceive oneself? How do we deceive ourselves? Why do we deceive ourselves? Is self-deception really possible? Drawing on cutting-edge empirical... more...

  • Irrationalityby Alfred R. Mele

    Oxford University Press 1992; US$ 64.99 US$ 55.89

    Although much human action serves as proof that irrational behavior is remarkably common, certain forms of irrationality--most notably, incontinent action and self-deception--pose such difficult theoretical problems that philosophers have rejected them as logically or psychologically impossible. Here, Mele shows that, and how , incontinent action... more...

  • Freeby Alfred R. Mele

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 15.95 US$ 13.72

    Has science proved that free will is an illusion? Some people say yes, citing experiments in neuroscience and psychology. The answer defended here is an emphatic no. Philosopher Alfred R. Mele here describes the crucial free will experiments in clear and simple language and lays out the most important problems with the claim that science has disproved... more...

  • Backslidingby Alfred R. Mele

    Oxford University Press 2012; US$ 25.99 US$ 22.35

    People backslide. They freely do things they believe it would be best on the whole not to do. Mele draws on work in social and developmental psychology and in psychiatry to motivate a view of human behavior in which both backsliding and overcoming the temptation to backslide are explicable. more...

    Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 124.99 US$ 107.49
