Who's in Charge?: Free Will and the Science of the Brain by Michael S. Gazzaniga
A common question among neuroscientists (at least those in a certain niche) is whether we’re really in control of our actions. This can be an incredibly complex question, and one that thousands of smart men have wrestled with for an equal number of years. As fate would have it, for quite a while the belief that our lives are ruled by forces outside our control has flourished.
In a strong call to reason, Michael. S. Gazzaniga strongly argues against the idea that we live in a world outside of our control. If you read the reviews of his books, the word that seems to come up most often is “fascinating”. This is a positive sign that Gazzaniga has created an engaging, page turner that will not only help you to relate to your more primitive side. Along the way you’ll also learn a great deal about the brain, all the while dispelling the myth that we lack control over our lives and destinies.
