Is Neuroscience the Death of Free Will?

Via Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

Some scientists are convinced that advances in brain science have overturned the idea of free will. They’re wrong. So, does neuroscience mean the death of free will? Well, it could if it somehow demonstrated that conscious deliberation and rational self-control did not really exist or that they worked in a sheltered corner of the brain that has no influence on our actions. But neither of these possibilities is likely. True, the mind sciences will continue to show that consciousness does not work in just the ways we thought, and they already suggest significant limitations on the extent of our rationality, self-knowledge, and self-control. Such discoveries suggest that most of us possess less free will than we tend to think, and they may inform debates about our degrees of responsibility. But they do not show that free will is an illusion.

Neuroscience Challenges Old Ideas about Free Will: Scientific American

Via Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

Celebrated neuroscientist Michael S.Gazzaniga explains the new science behind an ancient philosophical question..Human knowledge can’t help itself in the long run. Things slowly, gradually become more clear. As humans continue on their journey they will come to believe certain things about the nature of things and those abstractions will then be reflected in the rules that are set up to allow people to live together. Beliefs have consequences and we will see them reflected in all kinds of ways. Certainly how we come to think and understand human responsibility in the context of modern knowledge of biologic mechanisms will dictate how we choose our laws and our punishments.
