Free Will?

Feb 19, 2008

I’ve been subscribed to UC Berkeley’s social psychology podcast.

This, combined with a number of other things (like watching Numb3rs a lot) has got me thinking. And this is what interests me the most about the course.

And I’d like to throw the question out there. Do we really have free will?

Yes, we do have choices and all. But to an extent, aren’t there specific psychological and social adaptations in us that make us behave in a certain way? And aren’t our thoughts and feelings the result of neurons/chemical interactions in our brains?

Just questions I’d like to throw out. What are your thoughts?
