Another Classmate Is Very Unsettled After Reading About B F Skinner’S Claim That Free Will Is An Illusion
Another classmate is very unsettled after reading about B.F. Skinner’s
claim that free will is an illusion.
Psychology always tries to treat

your friend? Does an understanding of the basic principles of psychol-
ogy allow us to predict every detail of what individual humans will do?
