Moral responsibility (and so praiseworthiness or blameworthiness) requires free will in the sense of agents having the power to choose independently of all the causal influences acting on them. Various forms of compatibilism, and also incoherentism (the view that free will of this kind is an incoherent notion), are rejected.

Keywords:   compatibilism, free will, Van Inwagen, moral responsibility, Galen Strawson
