Is quantum indeterminism relevant to free will?

Philosophia Naturalis 37 (1):177-187 (2000)
Quantum indeterminism may make available the option of an interactionism that does not have to pay the price of a force over and above those forces that are acknowledged in physics in order to explain how intentions can be physically effective. I show how this option might work in concrete terms and offer a criticism of it.
