In this book, Tibor Machan takes a fresh look at the age-old question of nature's laws versus individual choice

In this book, Tibor Machan takes a fresh look at the age-old question of nature's laws versus individual choice. He offers an insightful discussion of human initiative as a basic feature of our personal and community lives-examining whether we are warranted in taking it seriously and, if so, what we should do about it in regard to some of our basic institutions. Writing on a level that educated laypeople can understand-yet without oversimplifying the nuances and complexities of the issue-Machan reveals what's at stake and why the free will hypothesis is indeed a strong one.

Tibor Richard Machan (/ˈtiːbɔːr məˈkæn/; 18 March 1939 – 24 March 2016) was a Hungarian-American philosopher. A professor emeritus in the department of philosophy at Auburn University, Machan held the R. C. Hoiles Chair of Business Ethics and Free Enterprise at the Argyros School of Business & Economics at Chapman University in Orange, California until 31 December 2014.

Machan was a minarchist. Machan's work usually focused on ethics and political philosophy, specifically natural rights theory, as in works such as Individuals and Their Rights (Open Court, 1989) and Libertarianism Defended (Ashgate, 2006). His full ethical position was developed in his book Classical Individualism: The Supreme Importance of Each Human Being (Routledge, 1998), and it is applied in, among other books, Generosity: Virtue in Civil Society (Cato Institute, 1998). Machan also wrote in the field of epistemology.
