A public lecture I gave at my university on some research I've been doing.

The debate over free will and determinism and their role in understanding human behavior and moral responsibility goes back as far as the Ancient Greeks. The modern argument has migrated to the field of neuroscience. Yet neither the modern debate, nor its historical predecessors have managed to provide much illumination of either human behavior or moral responsibility. In this talk, I will argue that we should abandon the concepts of free will and determinism entirely and instead shift towards thinking in alternate terms that will allow us to explain human behavior in terms of modern neuroscience and still make sense of moral responsibility.
