In a Nutshell with Dr Patrick Todd

Is moral responsibility compatible or incompatible with determinism (the view that, given what's happening now, what happens next is always guaranteed)?

What's really required in order to be responsible?

Dr Patrick Todd explains his latest research on Free Will and Moral Responsibility in a new edition of the University's Research in a Nutshell series.

Another great NEW Eidyn PROJECT "Foundations of Normativity" has just started!

This project aims to unify disparate strands of research being conducted across Philosophy, Law and Politics into questions about the nature of norms, rules and laws—those that govern institutions, actions and thought—and how these connect to reasons, responsibility and prescriptive language.

Prof Edouard Machery is now an Eidyn regular visiting distinguished professor

Prof Machery is Associate Professor of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh. His research focuses on the theoretical issues that are raised by psychology and cognitive science.
