When: 2PM TODAY

RSVP at: https://www.meetup.com/Steel-City-Skeptics/events/235125630/

Free Will. Sam Harris. Harris is a popular author and PhD in Neuroscience. In this short 66 page book, Harris states that the belief in free will touches nearly everything that human beings value. We imagine that every person is the true source of his/her thoughts and actions. And yet the facts tell us that free will is an illusion. Harris argues that this truth should enhance the way we think about some of the most important questions in life.

The library system has three copies. You can buy the book at Amazon for $4 plus shipping. You can find a number of videos or podcasts with Sam Harris. Here are a couple. Podcast with Dan Dennett.
