"Freedom despite mechanism"
Adina Roskies (
Many people think that advances in neuroscience will settle the question of whether or not we have free will. I argue that neuroscience will not be in a position to settle this question, and that suggestions that it can misunderstand both the limits of neuroscience and the nature of questions about freedom. However, when appropriately wedded to a philosophical picture, neuroscience can still be informative about freedom.
