Thomas Pink offers a new approach to the problem of free will. Do we have control of how we act, so that we are free to act in more than one way, and does it matter to morality whether we do? Pink argues that what matters to morality is not in fact the freedom to do otherwise, but something more primitive – a basic capacity or power to determine for ourselves what we do. Thomas Pink works on ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of law and on related areas of metaphysics, on the history of these fields.
