Freedom of Scientific Information

A brief piece on the flow of scientific knowledge and the merits of a open system of information sharing.

The Science of Free Will

Prepared remarks for the Unitarian Universalist congregation in my hometown led off by two readings from Hippocrates and David Foster Wallace.  The topic?  The Science of Free Will : What science does and does not tell us about our ability to choose. The full version of the David Foster Wallace reading is available here, and is well worth the 10 minute reading time.
