Iris Murdoch
David Pears
In his book Thought and Action Stuart Hampshire shows that there is always an area in which a person cannot say, on scientific grounds, that he will act in a certain way. The speakers in this discussion examine his argument in order to see what bearing it has on the question whether the will is really free.
