Over at the ‘Flickers of Freedom’ philosophers’ blog, an intense and sincere dialogue about free will and the is/ought distinction. (sigh). My short comment:
“Determinism is a fact of science and free will is a fact of human nature, which is a study, not a science. They are a complement like the yin and yang, not the clash of opposites of a Greek agon or the compatabilist’s messy swirl of oil and water.
We try much too hard to make understanding free will difficult.”[Email comments welcome: duoism(at)sbcglobal.net]
