Author’s Abstract

    Over the years there have appeared a number of theoretical and metatheoretical broadsides against Harry Frankfurt’s familiar arguments denying that a free moral agent have alternatives in some real sense as a necessary condition for her moral responsibility. In what follows I will attempt to focus on a particular defensive strategy of Frankfurt’s, which, when analyzed, yields evidence that such attacks, particularly the metatheoretical ones, are not misplaced.
