Philosophy: A Defense of Free Will Using Science
Finally, a solid defense for free will, and a discredit of determinism. Many questions, and few answers, in this episode. Feel free to publicly disagree and add to the conversation however you see fit. Thank you for listening and supporting the show.
I would not think it is possible to overstate the importance of maintaining a societal belief in free will to maintain our justice system and economic systems. The despair that would follow a population that beliefs they have no will over their lives may lead to a massive setback in society.
What do we do with the innate inclination to believe in free will, and why is it so innate within the species? Is there a way science can argue for free will? Or is there at least a way for science to challenge determinism?
