Professor Robert Greenberg's new book, The Bounds of Freedom: Kant's Causal Theory of Action, is scheduled for publication this coming September 26th and will be available at Walter de Gruyter, Berlin/Boston (publisher). It adapts Kant's causal theory of action to H. P. Grice's causal theory of perception. Kant's theory of the freedom of the will is explained in that context.

Congratulations to Professor Berislav Marušić for winning the 2016 Sanders Book Prize for his book, Evidence & Agency!
