I examine the three main types of response to the 'direct argument' for incompatibilism, and I argue that the result of the debate over the argument is a dialectical stalemate. While others have reached a similar conclusion, I go on to argue that the implications of this stalemate have not been properly appreciated. I contend that, as a result of this stalemate, we should be prepared to accept agnosticism about moral responsibility: we simply do not know if anyone is ever morally responsible for anything.
