dc.description.abstractSome philosophers and neuroscientists have recently been saying that science shows that we don't have free will, but it turns out that this claim-which would be bad news if true-is due to misrepresentation and misinterpretation. Since free will matters to people, and should matter, these contributions to public misunderstanding are regrettable. When we clarify the issues we see that we will have to make some significant adjustments to our understanding of moral responsibility, allowing for more differences in moral competence than our traditional understanding recognizes.en
