I want to relay here a comment from Tom Clark, Center for Naturalism, to my Jan. 4 post on Overbye's NY Times free will article, so that more of you are likely to see the link it includes.
"There were some suggestions in Overbye's article that questioning free will is a *good* thing. Einstein said seeing we don't have free will keeps us humble, and psychologist Dan Wegner suggested it would allow us to understand evil and prompt us to reform people instead of merely paying them back."
"There's a roundup of recent articles on free will, including Overbye's, at http://www.naturalism.org/roundup.htm."
