Watching Westworld – Freewill vs Determinism with Aaron Rabinowitz

Today we’re joined by Aaron Rabinowitz, lecturing philosopher at Rutgers, as well as host of the Embrace the Void and Philosophers in Space podcast. He’s going to be talking to us today about the concepts of freewill vs determinism. Are humans on inescapable loops? Are we truly free to make our own decisions? If not, do our choices matter in any meaningful way? How do these philosophies impact social policies, economics, criminal justice, and more? And how does this connect to the themes of Westworld?

If you’re interested in hearing Aaron discuss these concepts with someone on more even intellectual footing, you may enjoy this video hosting a debate with Ben Burgis.
