Responding to Sam Harris on free will

I have a long response - I say "response" because it's more than a "review" - to Free Will by Sam Harris ... over on the ABC Religion and Ethics Portal. Do I agree with Harris that there is no libertarian freedom of the will? Yes. Do I think Harris knows what he is talking about when he discusses compatibilist theories and accuses compatibilists of "changing the subject"? No.

Very nice piece of writing, Russell. I wish everyone writing on this complex issue could set out their position so clearly.
