The Myth of Free Will -Book

offering 50 more pages of quotes and short essays on free will. The contents are
divided into six chapters: 1) But It Seems So Real! 2) The Myth & Causality 3)
The Myth & Morality 4) The Myth & the Brain 5) The Myth & Naturalism 6) The Myth
& Me. There is a quiz, eight lessons, illustrations and a glossary. Contributors
include Thomas W. Clark, Daniel Wegner, Steven Pinker, Daniel Dennett, Sam
Harris, Richard Dawkins, Michael Shermer, William B. Provine, Paul Bloom,

Read Montague, Lee M. Silver, Matt Ridley, Ginger Campbell, V.S. Ramachandran,
Douglas Hofstadter, Kurt Vonnegut, Tamler Sommers, Mark Twain and Albert
Einstein. Author Susan Blackmore contributes a nice foreword, in which she says
we can live without free will, and do better, personally, morally and
practically. In all, 50 leading thinkers are represented. The book strives to
answer the question, Who is saying we don't have free will and what are their
credentials? It's mostly an anthology, definitely not a philosophy text. It was
written for a mainstream audience, for people who wonder: Do I have free will?
If not, why does it feel like I do? And it was written for people who understand
that free will is a myth (the choir) and want to share this understanding with
friends who might feel disturbed or intimidated by the subject

Adalah NY Zine "The Power of Our Voices" Graphic art about the call for the Cultural Boycott of Israel. Artwork by Ethan Heitner

Sarah Schulman, Susan Abulhawa, Aja Monet and Radhika Sainath at Verso Books in Brooklyn, September 18, 2017. Join writers Susan Abulhawa and Sarah Schulman, poet Aja Monet, and legal expert Radhika Sainath as they discuss the repression of Palestinian cultural production as well as the increasingly harsh attempts here in the United States to silence criticism of Israeli government policies. 


“Free (Speech) Palestine” continues the conversation about solidarity and the role of the artist that was sparked by the campaign calling on PEN America to reject Israeli government sponsorship for its World Voices Festival. The evening’s conversation will address the conditions under which Palestinian artists labor, the Palestinian call for the cultural boycott of Israel, and efforts to criminalize BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) in the United States. Organized by Adalah-NY: Campaign for the Boycott of Israel and Jewish Voice for Peace: Arts & Culture.
