Free will in a deterministic world?

Philosophy@LSE public lecture

Date: Tuesday 4 December 2012 
Time: 6.30-8pm 
Venue: Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building
Speaker: Professor Christian List
Chair: Dr Kristina Musholt

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.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. For any queries email j.cardinale@lse.ac.uk or call 020 7955 7539.
