Get That Chip Out Of My Brain

This interactive activity deals with issues broadly to do with free will and determinism, alternative possibilities and moral responsibility. It owes a lot to two essays in particular. The first is Harry Frankfurt's celebrated 1969 article from The Journal of Philosophy, Alternate Possibilities and Moral Responsibility; the second is an essay by John Martin Fischer & Mark Ravizza titled Morally Responsible People Without Freedom, which originally appeared as the final chapter of their 1998 book Responsibility and Control: A Theory of Moral Responsibility (CUP).

Really Deep Thought

The characteristic of the hour is that the commonplace mind, knowing itself to be commonplace, has the assurance to proclaim the rights of the commonplace and to impose them wherever it will.
   --Jose Ortega y Gasset.
