PHIL 80.12 Free Will, Responsibility and the Brain

Do we have free will? Does brain science show that we do or do not? How does moral responsibility depend on freedom? Can we be responsible if we are merely physical mechanisms? Can we blame people for their actions? This course will explore the philosophical questions and neuroscientific literature regarding free will, and will address the implications of this debate for law and society

Prerequisite

TMV

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
