Pop science journalists / authors Bob Wright and John Horgan have an interesting debate on free will from a, well, pop science point of view.
Nothing gets resolved, as always, but I like hearing well-informed middle-aged guys argue the same debate we’ve been hearing since the university dorm room.
Highlights include Wright’s assessment of Daniel Dennett’s Freedom Evolves:
Horgan naturally disagrees, but it’s telling that his biggest objection is his reluctance to accept a free-will-less universe. Isn’t that everyone’s biggest objection?
