Alfred Mele


Alfred Mele is the William H. and Lucyle T. Werkmeister Professor of Philosophy at Florida State University. He is known for his development of a causal theory of how intentional actions are produced and for his deflationary view of self-deception, which serve to disprove scientists’ claims that free will is an illusion. Mele is the author of 12 books, including Manipulated Agents: A Window to Moral Responsibility; Aspects of Agency: Decisions, Abilities, Explanations, and Free Will; and Free: Why Science Hasn’t Disproved Free Will. Mele also has authored more than 200 articles and served as the editor or co-editor of six books. He previously worked as the director of the Big Questions in Free Will project and the Philosophy and Science of Self-Control project, both of which featured collaborative research by scientists and philosophers.
