Episode 53 of the Brain Science Podcast is a discussion of the
book "Did My Neurons Make Me Do It?: Philosophical and
Neurobiological Perspectives on Moral Responsibility and Free Will"
by Nancey Murphy and Warren S. Brown. They argue convincingly
against those who conclude that neuroscience is uncovering a view
of the human mind that reveals that free will is an illusion
created by our brains. This is a very important topic that should
interest everyone who wonders how their intuitive sense of
themselves as a free agent can be harmonized with a naturalistic
explanation of the human mind.
