A Perspective On Free Will From An Eminent Philosopher

"The big philosophical problem with free will, which has been highlighted repeatedly by Sam Harris, and here stressed by Searle, is this: we feel as if we are free agents, that we are in control of our decisions—but we’re not.  How can that be? Compatibilism simply doesn’t deal with that question, and Searle calls compatibilism (at 6:25) a 'copout.'"
