I promised a bit about philosophy of mind and related topics, so here’s my first post on that subject. For now I’ll actually just link to the paper (free-will-2008-updated) I wrote a couple of years ago on the subject of free will. It’s not really very long, but it’s certainly longer than your average blog post. And it helps if you have a little familiarity with the subject, in particular the Libet experiments, which I respond to directly. At some point I might write a blog post condensing the ideas in the paper, but I’ve found it hard to get the point I’m trying to make across much more concisely.
