  1. Axons and Axioms Episode 2- Judgment Day [Free Will]

    A growing body of research in cognitive neuroscience seems to be suggesting that the concept of free will may be nothing but an illusion. It’s fair to say that both Tim and Derek think neuroscience might one day show that human actions, much like other events, are caused by nothing more than previous events and the laws of nature. This is the philosophical position known as ‘determinism.’ Where the A&A hosts disagree is whether this kind of determinism is threatening to free will (at least to the kinds of free will we are usually concerned with) or if the two might be compatible.
