Free Will and Determinism
Time & Location
About the Event
Is everything predetermined or are we able to make unimpeded decisions? Exploring 2,500 years of philosophical answers.
FREE OPEN LECTURE
In this presentation we'll summarize the ways philosophers and theologians have argued over this central question from ancient times to the present. If everything is predetermined, can anyone truly be blamed for their actions? If individuals have free will, what is the mechanism that allows for choice?
The presentation ends around 9.00. The exchange of ideas usually continues until 10, or even later, while we share complimentary snacks and beverages.
