Single Idea 3196

[catalogued under 16. Persons / F. Free Will / 5. Against Free Will]

Full Idea

We don't need arguments to show that if there were free will then computational accounts of the mind would be inadequate; what is needed is good evidence that there actually exists such free will in the first place.

Gist of Idea

Free will isn't evidence against a theory of thought if there is no evidence for free will
