Do We Really Have Free Will?
Back To Top
By "free will" I mean the ability to act at one's own discretion.
Free will deniers say the neurons in our brains are not exempt from the laws of physics, and, as such, our "decisions" are an illusion. They say our choices and actions are the results of a causal chain going back to our birth.
Free will proponents say we have veto power over our thoughts and impulses. We can exercise that veto power or not.
