Free Will by Sam Harris

I’m reading “Free Will” by Sam Harris, a short but lucid look at the illusion of free will. This is an illusion that is extremely difficult to overthrow, because we feel in our bones that we are the authors of our actions. But many studies show that your brain begins to initiate an action well BEFORE you are conscious of willing the action. This is one of the most debated and contested topics in philosophy, psychology, and even spirituality. Studying the illusion of free will will shake you up, and this brief book is a good way to do that.
