Here I will try to convince you that free will is real and not an illusion. I’ll argue that far from being exemplars of rationality and skepticism, the main arguments against free will make unjustifiable logical leaps and are naïve in the light of cutting-edge scientific findings.
Throughout the philosophical literature,8 resolving the question of whether or not we have free will has often revolved around two criteria for free will:
We must be the true sources of our own actions.
We must have the ability to do otherwise.
I argue that humans meet both criteria through two concepts: scale and undecidability. – Stuart T. Doyle (March 16, 2023)
We don’t usually hear skeptics arguing FOR free will. What’s changed?
