The CEU Department of Philosophy cordially invites you to a talk 
(as part of its Departmental Colloquium series)
by
Alfred Mele (Florida State University) 
on
“Free Will and Neuroscience”
 
 
Tuesday, 22 January, 2013, 5.30 PM, Zrinyi 14, Room 412
 
 
ABSTRACT
 
A major source of scientific skepticism about free will is the belief
(defended by neuroscientist Benjamin Libet, social psychologist Daniel
Wegner, and others) that conscious decisions and intentions never play a
role in producing corresponding actions.  I discuss two serious problems
encountered by any attempt to justify this belief by appealing to
existing neuroscientific data.
