Free Will Or the Next Best Thing!

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sun 24 Sep ’17, 2:00pm – 3:00pm


Central New Brighton School, Seaview Road, New Brighton, Christchurch, Christchurch



Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

This workshop is about free will. Day-to-day it seems like we have free will, it seems like we are constantly making choices about one thing or the other; what to drink, what to wear, what movie to go and see, or avoid. But is this sense of freedom/autonomy real or an illusion?

This workshop will address the following questions:
- Do we really make choices?
- Do we control reality, or does reality control us?
- Do we sculpt and craft our thoughts, or are they automated conscious occurrences?
- Is the notion of, 'could have done otherwise,' a myth?
- Is blaming others irrational and a process that tends to make us angry?
- Would knowing that free will is an illusion help our day-­to-day lives?

(Entrance by the zebra crossing opposite the fire station).

No need to book. Koha appreciated, but not compulsory.
