The UK press has had plenty of discussion on free will recently. If you haven't seen this article yet by Julian Baggini, it has some good observations on twins and free will.

http://www.theguardian.com/science/2015/mar/19/do-your-genes-determine-your-entire-life

This much briefer article discusses two opposing viewpoints by AC Grayling and John Gray both of whom have recently published new books

http://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/mar/22/the-soul-of-the-marionette-john-gray-the-challenge-of-things-ac-grayling-review

My intention for this post is more of an announcement than to start a threat, per se. My personal viewpoint on free will is closer to John Gray's which makes me a Stoic. But I don't have any axe to grind with anybody on free will.

Thank you for that 1st link Dr H. I found that read most interesting & helps to settle some deep conundrums I have about the notion of "Free Will".
