Among our distinctive abilities, one is particularly remarkable: The capacity to control our future conduct by taking future-directed decisions. In virtue of their binding force on future conduct, future-directed decisions are indispensable for the success of most of our projects. These decisions and the commitments that they generate are pervasive and familiar phenomena of diachronic agency. Nonetheless, their alleged binding force appears puzzling when it is subjected to philosophical scrutiny.
