How Kurt Vonnegut emphasizes free will in his writing.

Contributed by Jason Dunlap

Michio Kaku says in a flat two minutes why we do not have--or shouldn't even argue about--free will because of physics. Eerie to think about, but what about chaos theory?

Libet's experiments on free will, presented at the Florida State University. If we do have free will, then in what way do we control our behavior? This lecturer discusses various experiments and then focuses on Libet's free will work. Is he implying that if we don't have free will, we're aggressive, or that if we believe we don't have free will we're aggressive? Not sure, but he still does appropriately highlight some good experiments.

A comprehensive yet brief coverage of the question, Do we have free will? If we do not, then what decides. If we do, then...what decides? How do we believe that our brains are wired to work in a certain way, yet also believe we are free to act how we would like to act? Watch this video to see what one experiment has revealed.
