Once again, a listener (Mary Ellen) asks us via Twitter to tackle a big topic: is there such a thing as free will? Graham and Ray examine this question from the perspectives of quantum physics, neurology, multiverse theory, semantics, and sociology. That’s an easy topic for a 30 minute podcast featuring two slightly tipsy professors, right? This episode is brought to you by Chekd and by our books sold on Amazon.
Some of the things we talk about are:
- Pierre Bourdieu and his theory of habitus
- Are all the ants as heavy as all the humans?
- The Physics of Free Will
- Do we have free will – a physicist’s perspective
