How can psychology contribute to the free will debate?

In J. Baer, J. Kaufman & R. Baumeister (eds.), Psychology and Free Will. Oxford University Press (2009)
Abstract
Are people free and morally responsible? Or are their actions determined, i.e. inevitable outcomes of the past conditions and the laws of nature? These seem fairly straightforward questions, but it is important to distinguish 3 different dimensions of the free will debate: a descriptive project, a substantive project, and a prescriptive project. In this chapter, I’ll consider how psychology can contribute to each project in turn. First, I should say a bit more about the projects.
