At the Moving Naturalism Forward workshop, I gave a brief Powerpoint presentation designed to stimulate discussion (Dan had one too, and that, and mine, will eventually be on the YouTube videos. I’ll put it here as well; you can get a complete idea of what I said by looking at the slides. (Click to enlarge). The “reader comment” in one of the slides below was made by one of the readers of this website, whose name I didn’t save. If it was yours, weigh in below and claim credit.
My take on the reaction of the participants, and on the meeting as a whole, will be in the next post. The quote about the phrase that will replace free will comes from Marvin Minsky.
