Hjerneforskningen er kun lige begyndt Giver det mening at stille kriminelle til ansvar for deres handlinger, når nu hjerneforskningen har vist, at vi ikke har fri vilje? Dette spørgsmål stiller Nikolaj Theil i kommentaren ’Amagermanden hinsides skyld’, bragt i Information d. 23.11. Årsagerne til kriminelle handlinger har oprindelse i hjernen og er ikke et udtryk for ’jegets’ frie vilje. Det giver derfor ikke mening at snakke om skyld og straf. Men her er en fundamental fejl: Selv om hjernen beskrives som årsag til alle handlinger, glemmer forfatteren at fortælle, hvad der menes med ’Jeget’. Denne idé spores tilbage til de antikke filosoffer, men er især forbundet med den franske filosof René Descartes. Problemet er, at for at Jeget kan opleve, hvad hjernen præsenterer i kontrolrummet, må Jeget naturligvis selv have kropslige sanseorganer, som samles i et nyt kontrolrum osv., i et uendeligt loop. Har vi fri vilje? Hvad mener vi, når vi taler om at have fri vilje?

In response to the allegations, he issued a statement accusing the environmental group of bringing up the funding issue because it is “unable to attack the science I and my collaborators do.” While his positions are often cited by the fishing industry, what was previously not known is that Hilborn has accepted $3.5 million in corporate research funding from 2003 to 2014. In addition, he stated that some of the organizations Greenpeace labels “industry groups” are actually small fishing communities in Alaska. “Dr. Speak Truth To Power Related
