The central theme of this book is the nature of what we term free will and responsibility. Our understanding of these concepts has important implications for how we think about ourselves. It is also of central relevance to how we respond to wrongdoing, whether this is perpetrated by those who are mentally well or who those suffer from some form of psychiatric disorder.
