Rationality + Consciousness = Free Will

David Hodgson

Philosophy of Mind

  • Focuses on a perennial philosophical problem, that of reconciling free will and responsibility with what science tells us about the world
  • Develops Hodgson's original theory in full for the first time
  • Involves a specific and straightforward suggestion concerning the contribution of conscious experiences to decision-making, namely that they enable an organism to be responsive to circumstances grasped as wholes, not just to those constituent features that engage with applicable laws or rules
