Determinism, Free Will, and Moral Responsibility - An Invitation to a Discussion Over Coffee

Self, confronting evil

I just read Boston Review's excellent discussion on determinism (especially biological), free will, and moral responsibility. "Does the fact that biology determines more of our thinking and conduct than we had previously imagined undermine the notion of free will? And does this possibility in turn undermine, if not entirely destroy, our ability to hold people accountable for their actions?"

Anyone who would like to meet me for coffee and discuss this essay and the responses please send me an e-mail at:

I'm looking at the last week in August - probably a Saturday morning at Panera Bread here in Monroe.

Read the essays in advance.

If you e-mail me I've cut and pasted the entire series in a single document and will send that to you.
