Summary
"One of the first books to discuss, at the same time, the implications of quantum physics, Libet's experiments and the neurophysiological finding of mirror neurons Uses scientific data as a basis for drawing philosophical implications. Contains interdisciplinary contributions from neuroscientists, quantum physicists, and free-will philosophers. There is a perceived conflict within the scientific community between the conviction that a human being has free will on one hand, and deterministic physics and neuroscience on the other. When faced with this conflict, two alternative positions are possible: either human freedom is an illusion, or deterministic science is not the last word on the brain and will eventually be superseded by a neuroscience that admits processes not completely determined by the past."--publisher's website
