podcast image"Free Will" Through the Lenses of Philosophy and Neuroscience with Dr Alfred Mele
The debate over whether or not free will exists is not new. The main points of contention in this discussion are whether or not we have control over our actions, and if so, what kind of control we have and to what extent. On the one hand, we have a strong sense of liberty, which causes us to trust in our own free will. An intuitive and instinctive sense of free will, on the other hand, could be misinterpreted. In this episode of Bridging the Gaps, I speak with Dr Aflred Mele and we discuss the concept of “F... (2021-Jul-25 • 43 minutes • @BTG_ie)
