Do Humans Have Free Will?
A Discussion of Agent Causation led by Bill Meacham, Ph.D.
An Austin Philosophy Discussion Group Special Lecture
* Austin Java Company, 1608 Barton Springs Road
* Tuesday, January 26
* 7:00 - 9:00 pm
Agent Causation is the notion that agents -- beings with will and intention, like us -- cause things to happen in a different way from physical causality. The theory of agent causation is not that what agents do is uncaused. It is that what causes agents to do things is different from what causes physical objects to do things, and that even so, an agent?s actions cannot be fully predicted. This notion has important implications for our understanding of the fundamental questions of philosophy: what is real, how we can know what is real, and what to do about what is real.
After a short lecture there will be ample time for discussion. Admission is free, but we encourage you to have dinner or a snack at Austin Java Company.
