Free Will: A prominent philosopher in the discussion on Free Will is Galen Strawson (son of the famous Oxford Professor Sir P.F. Strawson, who also wrote about free will and determinism). G. Strawson argues, against the majority view, that humans are not free. His serious paper on the subject is located here http://www.ucl.ac.uk/~uctytho/dfwVariousStrawsonG.html — and he explains it less formally in this interview — http://www.believermag.com/issues/200303/?read=interview_strawson. Can free will and determinism be compatible, as some philosophers argue? Why does Strawson think they are wrong? Is he persuasive?
