That was my last post as December’s Flickers guest. I want to thank everyone for having me here, especially Thomas. I realize a lot of people were away for the holidays, so I will continue to check for and answer comments on my existing posts in January.
I had hoped to write much more about the scientific aspects of FW, including posts on why Libet and Wegner pose no threat to FW. And I had also hoped to discuss the central role of consciousness in volition, particularly volitional attentional operations. But I followed the flow of questions and got much more into defending LFW than was my original plan. Well, the month got away from me, and I would need another month to unpack the relevance of the science of volitional decision-making, volitional attention and consciousness in a way that philosophers would not find irrelevant. So I guess I will just have to come back to post here again should a free month open up down the line someday, assuming people here would be interested in having me again.
I wish everyone a productive and healthy 2015, and wish Justin good luck in January, and Alan good luck in February.
