I’m not sure what to think about this article. BUT WAIT! Before you clink on that link and read it, please take a second to complete the following poll:
Suppose scientists came up with a device that could read your brain activity and accurately predict every decision you make before you make it. Would you then conclude that you have no free will? Or is your belief in human liberty so strong that the very idea of such predictability seems to you impossible? Or do you see no conflict between free will and such predictability? Or would it matter only if someone informed you about the predictions?
UPDATE: I can’t get the poll to appear, so give the matter some thought, and then read the article and see what you think!
One thought on “Neuroscience and free will”
Grrr… just a moment, trying to get the poll to appear….
