“Is Free Will an illusion?” with Andy Parkin
May 3 @ 7:30 pmFREE
What does ‘Free Will’ actually mean?
How does it contrast with Determinism, which could be said to be the opposite of Free Will?
Also, whilst we’re at it, let’s look at Compatibilism and Dualism.
And, if we decide that there actually is no such thing as free will, what are the implications for criminality and general society?
Although not a specialist in any particular subject, Andy Parkin has, throughout his life, maintained a keen interest in all things scientific, particularly Cosmology and, of late, has become interested in Philosophy and Epistemology.
For much of the last 20 years Andy has been teaching English all over the world and before that worked in the software industry and as a management consultant (among other things). He is a keen birder and also a school speaker for Humanists UK.
