Tim O’Keefe, Epicurus on Freedom (Cambridge University Press, 2005) [Book Review]

Journal of Value Inquiry 41 (1):107-112 (2007)
Epicurus on Freedom has considerable merit, but there are some elements of OKeefes argument that are worthy of a second thought. Two of OKeefes major claims are that Epicuruss proposal of swerves as an answer to the problem of whether we have the ability to do otherwise would be an inadequate answer, and that Epicurus should be concerned with the problem of openness and contingency of the future, not the problem of our ability to do otherwise. I address each of these claims
