?In this collection of essays, Audi develops a general theory of action ranging from the nature of action and action-explanation to free and rational action. . . . Audi employs a host of subtle distinctions and carefully crafted arguments in defending a unified position on the major issues in action theory. In his characteristically lucid prose, he makes vivid the location of those issues at the intersection of ethics, metaphysics, and the philosophy of mind. . . . [This volume] will make a lasting contribution to the literature in action theory.?--Alfred R. Mele, Mind
