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).

What improves the circumstances of the greater part can never be regarded as an inconveniency to the whole. No society can surely be flourishing and happy, of which the far greater part of the members are poor and miserable.
   --Adam Smith.
