Downward mental causation and free will

I know, to free will or not to free will, that is the hackneyed question debated in philosophical circles since we learned how to talk. But here’s a cognitive neuroscientist’s research on “how neuronal code underlies top-down mental causation.” It’s a long video, over 2 hours, and I have yet to complete it. Here is Peter Tse’s CV.  Here is his book on the topic is. Here is a good summary of Tse’s work on the topic.

One thought on “Downward mental causation and free will

  1. A very good video. A lot of information to assimilate. I like the model. It’s comforting that he is making the case that humans have the capability to respond differently to future events. I also like the notion of a middle path between determinism and free will.
