Free Will Explained : How the Melody of Science and the Harmony of Philosophy Create a Beautiful Illusion, Paperback / softback Book

Free Will Explained : How the Melody of Science and the Harmony of Philosophy Create a Beautiful Illusion Paperback / softback

Description

A compelling essay on free will from an internationally recognized authority on atheism, and author of God: The Most Unpleasant Character in All Fiction. Do we have free will? And if we don't, why do we feel as if we do? In a godless universe governed by impersonal laws of cause and effect, are you responsible for your actions?

Former evangelical minister Dan Barker (God: The Most Unpleasant Character in All Fiction) unveils a novel solution to the question that has baffled scientists and philosophers for millennia.

He outlines the concept of what he calls "harmonic free will," a two-dimensional perspective that pivots the paradox on its axis to show that there is no single answer--both sides are right.

Free will is a useful illusion: not a scientific, but a social truth.
