Freedom Evolves

Author: Dennett Daniel C

SKU: 9780140283891
Is there really such a thing as free will?

How can humans make genuinely independent choices if we are just a cluster of cells and genes in a world determined by scientific laws?
How can we still be in control of our lives?

In this myth-shattering book, Daniel Dennett shows that free will does exist. But instead of the traditional view of freedom as an eternal, unchanging condition of our existence, in reality, he reveals, it has evolved; just like life on the planet and the air we breathe. Evolution is the key to resolving this greatest of philosophical questions – and to understanding our place in the world as uniquely free agents.

Tim Winton In Conversation

For over thirty years, Tim Winton has written novels in which the natural world is as much a living presence as any character. This October Tim will be appearing in-conversation for two special events (Perth and Melbourne only) to share his personal relationship with the Australian landscape, how it came to be, how it has determined his ideas, his writing and his life. Both events will be followed by a book signing.
