About The Event
We are a small, long-running group meeting monthly to discuss the interplay of spirituality and science. There is generally a small set of reading followed by lively, intriguing discussion.
For March we have a great session lined up: Bob Doyle is a Harvard astronomer, inventor, and philosopher and has accepted an invitation to lead our discussion that month.
Bob has written a comprehensive website and book on Free Will ... how is it, in a universe that seems inescapably governed by cause and effect, we feel we have the ability to make decisions of our own accord? (After surveying vast amounts of literature Bob posits his own two stage "Cogito" Model, a refinement of a two-stage model previously put forth by other thinkers). It's a fascinating problem with implications for how we view ourselves and our sense of justice.
Beforehand, please read through these pages on his website https://informationphilosopher.com/ :

(you are of course encouraged to read further down the navigation or to acquire his book
