Product description


Philosophically sophistricated and empirically up-to-date (Tim Bayne, Times Literary Supplement)

This book is beautifully written, stimulating, incisive and convincing. Holton is terrific at finding excellent examples, many from literature, to prove or to illustrate his points: the book is embellished with passages or quotations from everyone from Somerset Maugham and Gustave Flaubert to A.S. Byatt and Martin Amis. Willing, Wanting, Waiting is a true pleasure to read, and should not be missed by anyone interested in the philosophy of mind or action. (Sarah Stroud, The Philosophical Quarterly)

About the Author

Richard Holton is Professor of Philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has previously taught at Monash University, the Australian National University, the University of Sheffield, and the University of Edinburgh.
