relation, and this contributes to the luck of the view. additionally, while brokers act freely, the particular reasons are richer than they seem like at the start sight; specifically, they replicate the brokers' sensitivity to purposes, the place this contains either the life of tangible purposes and the absence of other

So performing freely calls for extra explanations and really complicated reasons, rather than fewer reasons and less complicated motives, and is suitable with these motives being deterministic. The booklet connects various debates, the single on causation and the only at the challenge of unfastened will, in new and illuminating ways.
