Furlong and Santos survey studies of framing and situational influences on behavior in capuchin monkeys as well as humans, but they argue that both humans and monkeys can still have some control and freedom. In his comment, Hare suggests that a comparative and evolutionary approach might illuminate the function of control and free will in both humans and other species. Miller, however, is more critical of the implications that Furlong and Santos (as well as Hare) draw from their data. In their reply, Furlong and Santos argue that their main points survive these criticisms.
