According to publisher Oxford University Press, pre-orders are now being taken for UArizona Emeritus Regents Professor of Philosophy and FC Research Fellow Keith Lehrer’s new book, Ultimate Freedom – Beyond Free Will. Lehrer’s latest book will publish and ship in early August.

“What is the difference between just doing what you desire because it feels good and acting on what you prefer because of scientific acceptance,” Oxford’s description notes. “Philosopher Keith Lehrer outlines a view of freedom of choice based on a Kahneman-derived distinction between what he calls a first-order system that is intuitive and immediate and a higher-order system of response, which he calls a second system of scientific analysis. Lehrer argues that freedom of choice is an expression of attention to the higher order system and that what is often called free will is often just doing what you desire, a response that neglects consideration of other options.”
