Course Summary

Some say that the course of our lives is decided by Fate. Others see the job as done – completely – by factors in our heredity and environment.  What are the implications of such views? Or do we instead have genuine ‘free will’ in our decisions and actions, and what does this involve?

Brief notes will be distributed ahead of each class.

Delivered by: Dr Douglas Adeney

Doug lectured in philosophy for many years at Melbourne State College and then the University of Melbourne. Since 2011 he has greatly enjoyed teaching numerous CAE philosophy courses. A non-academic friend of his was once asked by his wife what Doug did for a living. On hearing that he was a philosopher, she said ‘Oooh, he must be very intelligent … Or is he just weird?’ Come and decide for yourself.
