Freedom Evolves

Author(s): Daniel C. Dennett


In this text, Daniel Dennett shows that human freedom is not an illusion; it is an objective phenomenon, distinct from all other biological conditions and found only in one species - us. He argues that there was a time when it didn't exist and that it had to evolve and continues to evolve today.
