The Illusion of Conscious Will
An immensely important piece of work. How we can have the impression we're making a conscious decision when such things don't exist.
Unfortunately, Professor Wegner passed away far too early. He's top of my list of dead people I'd like to have to dinner.
In this latest edition, Daniel Gilbert and Thalia Wheatley do an admirable job of forewording and introducing the great man. Was he a bumbler or a pointer? Jump straight into the thoughtful text and find arguments that will frighten, disturb and awaken you. All told by an author whose fascination with the subject is infectious.
