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.
