Free will in a deterministic world?
Speaker(s): Professor Christian List
Chair: Dr Kristina Musholt
Recorded on 4 December 2012 in Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building.
Science, especially the idea that everything in the universe is physically determined, is often thought to challenge the notion that we, humans, have free will and are capable of choosing our own actions. The aim of this lecture is to argue that there is room for free will in a world governed by the laws of physics.
Christian List is professor of political science and philosophy at LSE.
