3-Things Friday - "Free Will"

Good Morning!
This week I seemingly fell victim to the cognitive bias known as Baader-Meinhof phenomenon. After watching a couple of videos on the topic of free will (or mostly the illusion of free will) last weekend, it kept appearing out of nowhere throughout the week wherever I looked and went.
So… I didn’t really choose to make this week’s edition about free will. It feels like it had chosen itself. This is the first 3-Things Friday dedicated to a single topic. I hope you enjoy it!
Have a great weekend,
Rupert

What I’m reading
“NAUTILUS - Selection”
Beautifully illustrated, NAUTILUS tells you about science and its connections to our lives. “Each issue combines the sciences, culture and philosophy into a single story told by the world’s leading thinkers and writers.”
What I’m watching
“Sam Harris on Free Will” (Youtube; 78 Min)
Sam Harris is an American Philosopher and Neuroscientist who is known as the author of a number of popular books including one on Free Will called .. “Free Will”.  He argues that free will does not exist and makes very compelling arguments why that is actually a good thing as it undercuts any rational argument for hating others.
