- After studying science at UCL, what led me to give up physicalism?
How different the evolution of human nature looks from a humanities' point of view. If we insist we're conscious and have free will, what does that imply about evolution?
Physical determinists abuse the authority of science by asserting their own temperamental bias against a dulism involving free will, and how to rebut that assertion.
How should the humanities respond to science's offer to rebase the humanities on physics and darwinism ("consilience")? By coming up with a consilience of their own, to base science on.
