The dark side of free will | Gregg Caruso | TEDxChemungRiver (10'11'')

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. What would happen if we all believed free will didn't exist? As a free will skeptic, Dr. Gregg Caruso contends our society would be better off believing there is no such thing as free will.

Dr. Gregg D. Caruso is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Corning Community College and Editor-in-Chief of the scholarly journal Science, Religion and Culture. He received his B.A. in Philosophy from William Paterson University and his M.Phil and Ph.D. in Philosophy from the City University of New York, Graduate Center. He is the author of “Free Will and Consciousness: A Determinist Account of the Illusion of Free Will (2012)” and the editor of “Exploring the Illusion of Free Will and Moral Responsibility (2013)” and “Science and Religion: 5 Questions (2014).” An active member of the local community and a believer in the power of idea, Dr. Caruso welcomed the opportunity of this TEDxChemungRiver 2014 to share his work on free will with the community he loves. In his free time he fancies himself an amateur paleontologist, collecting fossils with his daughter, Maya, and fossil hunting the Devonian rock of central New York state.
