FCPGM 014: Free will versus pre-determinism
Show Notes

What did you have for breakfast this morning? Was that your choice? Or did the atoms of the universe over the past 13.7B years collide and interact in a predictable chain reaction that led to you having the life experiences and opportunities which in turn led to you inevitably picking that particular breakfast today? Is free will a myth? In this episode, we weigh up the arguments of free will and pre-determinism. If we don’t have free will, can we take credit for anything we do right? Or suffer the responsibility of anything we do wrong? Prepare for a thumping headache as we meander through philosophy and metaphysics during this episode.
