This paper studies the main properties of control from a minimalist perspective. After reviewing the possibility that control be analyzed as a case of raising (as argued for by Hornstein 1999 et seq.), I put forward an alternative account that takes obligatory control to obtain through Multiple Agree (pace Landau 1999, 2000), the controller (or antecedent) and PRO being Goals of the same Probe. In so doing, I further propose a Merge-based formulation of the Theta Criterion (whose elimination was key in order to support movement based treatments of control), and consider the consequences of the proposed analysis for Chomsky's (2000, 2001) Phase Impenetrability Condition.
