MEDIA REVIEWS
The book is a major contribution to the philosophical literature on action, self-control, freedom, and autonomy, and it should be read by anyone with a serious interest in these issues * MIND, Vol.110, No.439 *
Autonomous Agents is an intricate, careful, and closely argued study, one that is well informed by relevant work from psychology as well as philosophy * MIND, Vol.110, No.439 *
Mele is a clear, careful writer. His book challenges the reader to reflect seriously on the meaning of self-control and autonomy ... Mele has hit his mark in this well-argued, engaging, and thought-provoking book. * John Ranieri, The Review of Metaphysics *
extremely interesting and carefully argued book ... His general approach, which is fresh and original, runs as follows. He articulates a model of the ideally self-controlled person and argues that even such a person can fall short of autonomy, or self-government. ... Mele has a finely tuned sense of the 'pull', or intuitive appeal, of both compatabilism and incompatibilism. * Philosophical Psychology, vol.10, no.1, 1997 *
