MIND TIME

Libet’s work has focused on temporal relations between neural events and experience. He is famous in part for discovering that we unconsciously decide to act well before we think we’ve made the decision to act. This finding has major implications for one of the deepest problems in philosophy and psychology, namely the problem of “free will”

I just typed the word “free will” into the search engine on google.com, and it returned more than 5,700,000,000 results. If I wait a few weeks, there will be probably more. Does the world need another cumulative, updated, and novel view of the notion of “free will”? I think Yes..
