Abstract
A critical review of Charles Goodman's view about Buddhism and free will to the effect that Buddhism is hard determinist, basically because he thinks Buddhist causation is definitively deterministic, and he thinks determinism is definitively incompatible with free will, but especially because he thinks Buddhism is equally definitively clear on the non-existence of a self, from which he concludes there cannot be an autonomous self.
Keywords Buddhism  free will  hard determinism  Buddhist hard determinism  Buddhist no-self theory  incompatibilism  Buddhism and free will
