In the this episode of Brain Science
we talk with neuroscientist Kevin Mitchell about his new
book Free Agents: How Evolution Gave Us Free Will.
While many neuroscientists and philosophers argue that free will is
an illusion, Mitchell argues that the ability to make meaningful
choices is part of our evolutionary heritage. He also addresses the
important issue of determinism, siding with those physicists who
argue that the fundamental nature of our universe is NOT
deterministic. These issues are crucial to how we see ourselves and
