Does Science Disprove Free Will?
this author the answer is a resounding "NO." I just finished Alfred Mele's most recent book on the issue. It's written for a popular audience and is very clear & well written. For $10-15 the book is probably overpriced given that it consists in a mere 95 pages. But it's a fun a little read if you want to quickly get up to speed on some of the recent scientific work which has been alleged to debunk freedom of the will. Daniel Dennett gives it his endorsement--for what it's worth, which probably ain't much.
