This paper will examine conceptual and empirical issues in the literature on free will and moral responsibility. Topics may include: Does free will or moral responsibility require the ability to do otherwise? If we lack the kind of free will required for moral responsibility, can punishment be justified? Do psychopathy or addiction pose problems for theories of moral responsibility? Have experimental findings shown that we don't have free will or that there are methodological problems with philosophical debates about free will and moral responsibility?
