Sam Harris on Free Will

As my work puts forth the pronouncement that all human behavior is involuntary, i.e., automatic and choiceless, it overlaps with the age-old issue of free will discussed by philosophers, cognitive scientists, and neuroscientists. I reference many of these in my second book, “The Myth of Doing.” Sam Harris, both a philosopher and a neuroscientist, wrote the incredible book “Free Will” in 2012 which I highly recommend reading (it is very short and accessible). I am in complete alignment with him on this particular topic and am grateful for his clarity in this video.
