I wrote a guest post on A Tippling Philosopher and I thank Jonathan for having me. The post talks about the dangers of free will and gives a few reasons why we are better off abandoning the belief in it. Take a look here:

I met Jonathan, owner of the Tippling Philosopher blog, and author of a number of interesting books, a few years back while on facebook. I explained to him I was in the process of writing my book on the lack of free will. He had written his own book on the free will debate titled: Free Will? An investigation into whether we have free will, or whether I was always going to write this book. Of course I downloaded it to my Kindle and read it at that time. I found he shares many of the same philosophical understandings surrounding the topic.
If you are looking for an excellent understanding of the three primary compatibilist, libertarian, and determinist views of free will, this book is an excellent read that goes over many of the common philosophical arguments for each.
Now that my book is out it’s great that people like Jonathan are willing to support my philosophical endeavors by having me guest post (and he’s going to read my book and review it too). Us un-free-will-ists need to stick together. This is about educating people on this important topic, and the more people doing so the better.
It’s best to build communities by networking with others who hold this understanding.
