The Philosophy and Science of Self-Control

Previous Project: Big Questions in Free Will

In January, 2010, with the support of a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation, Florida State University launched a four-year project on free will — Big Questions in Free Will — directed by Alfred R. Mele, William H. and Lucyle T. Werkmeister Professor of Philosophy at Florida State University.

The primary purpose of the project was to improve our understanding of free will in three spheres: science (especially neuroscience and social psychology); philosophy; and theology.

A list of publications generated by the project can be found here.

The programs from the conferences held during the course of the project, as well as videos of the presentations from the final conference can be found here.
