• Dan Davis responds to my Free Will article in Free Inquiry with his own

    I recently had an article (“Is Society Accepting That Free Will Is an Illusion?”) in the Free Inquiry magazine published in the US, which was, as far as I can tell, well received. In fact, Tom Clark liked it enough to say and post it at Naturalism.org. Tom Clark stated:

    “Damn good article – the site needed new content and it totally filled the bill. Keep up the good work!”

    In fact, one commenter said,

    “Pearce writes very clearly and has an exceptional talent for rendering a complex and difficult topic into an elegant piece.”

    Wow! Thanks.

    However, there has been a response to the article in the present issue of the Free Inquiry magazine. It is behind a paywall here, but I will see if I can get hold of it. Someone has told me it has something to do with Doyle’s two-stage theory which I looked at briefly here.

    Anyway, off to find it now.
