Get That Chip Out Of My Brain

This interactive activity deals with issues broadly to do with free will and determinism, alternative possibilities and moral responsibility. It owes a lot to two essays in particular. The first is Harry Frankfurt's celebrated 1969 article from The Journal of Philosophy, Alternate Possibilities and Moral Responsibility; the second is an essay by John Martin Fischer & Mark Ravizza titled Morally Responsible People Without Freedom, which originally appeared as the final chapter of their 1998 book Responsibility and Control: A Theory of Moral Responsibility (CUP).

Really Deep Thought

There are, as is known, insects that die in the moment of fertilization. So it is with all joy: life's highest, most splendid moment of enjoyment is accompanied by death.
   --Soren Kierkegaard.
