Philosopher Onkar Ghate Corrects Sam Harris Errors on Free Will

Onkar Ghate refutes Sam Harris’ misconceptions about free-will by explaining that free-will is primarily not about the reasons for choosing one’s actions (content), but fundamentally about the choice to think or not (process): to focus one’s mind on grasping reality or not. He then shows how to properly conceptualize the self-evident fact of free-will in a causal universe.

Also of interest is Dr. Ghate’s The Objectivist Theory of Free-will. For a systematic presentation of Ayn Rand’s philosophy pick up a copy of Leonard Peikoff’s Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand.
