Review of Metaphysics 27 (4):795-795 (1974)

In this intelligently constructed and clearly written work readers will discover a worthwhile discussion of man as a moral being. Central to the position developed by the authors is the notion that men are capable of freely determining their own lives through their own choices. The work begins by analyzing the notion of freedom and by distinguishing the freedom of self-determination, the basic freedom that makes man to be a moral being, from other types of freedom, e.g., freedom from external coercion, freedom to do as one pleases, political freedom. A self-referential argument is directed against determinism.
