Wait, There’s a Baby in that Bathwater: a Naturalistic Defense of Free Will and Agency

Synopsis: Since Descartes, the western intellectual tradition has tended to view nature as an interlocking system of mechanistic parts, devoid of meaning purpose and value. Attempts to interject concepts of agency, autonomy, and will, from Kant to Hegel, to Kierkegard, to Whitehead, have been met with brief periods of acceptance, but have ultimately been rejected as illicit attempts to smuggle in supernatural “skyhooks” from the other side of the Cartesian divide.
