    Feltz, Bernard | Missal, Marcus | Sims, Andrew Cameron 2020 Value Inquiry Book Series , Vol. 338 ( Serie ) Leiden; Boston : Brill | Rodopi 9789004409965 | BRILL9789004409965 Abstract

    Neuroscientists often consider free will to be an illusion. Contrary to this hypothesis, the contributions to this volume show that recent developments in neuroscience can also support the existence of free will. Firstly, the possibility of intentional consciousness is studied. Secondly, Libet's experiments are discussed from this new perspective. Thirdly, the relationship between free will, causality and language is analyzed. This approach suggests that language grants the human brain a possibility to articulate a meaningful personal life. Therefore, human beings can escape strict biological determinism.
