Summary In this follow up to 'My Way and Our Stories' the author defends the contention that moral responsibility is associated with 'deep control'. Deep control is defined as the middle ground between two untenable extreme positions: 'superficial control' and 'total control'. Our freedom consists of the power to add to the given past, holding fixed the laws of nature, and therefore, the author contends, we must be able to interpret our actions as extensions of a line that represents the actual past.
