Central to human agency and thus to moral responsibility is the idea of human action. An earlier book (Act and Crime) defended a version of a causal theory of action according to which all human actions are in essence willed bodily movements and nothing else. This theory is defended against the extended secondary literature criticizing this theory.

Keywords:   acts, voluntary acts, omissions, volitions, bodily movements, metaphysics of actions, individuation of actions
