What role does our brain play in the construction of free will, and how much scientific evidence is there for its existence? What exactly are we talking about when we talk about ‘freedom’ anyway?

It is a question, of course, that has puzzled philosophers and theologians for centuries and feeds into numerous political, social, and personal concerns. Are we products of our culture, or free agents within it? How much responsibility should we take for our actions? Are our neural pathways fixed early on by a mixture of nature and nurture or is the possibility of comprehensive, intentional psychological change always open to us?
