Review: two books on ‘Free Will’

TLSA book review I wrote for the Times Literary Supplement in 2003. From the review: “Science seems to portray us as complex lumps of matter, whereas common-sense sees us as rational, free, and conscious agents. Can we reconcile these two pictures?”

This version includes the spelling error that the sub-editor and I both missed, but one TLS reader and letter writer did not. Can you spot it?
