László Bernáth


Do human beings have free will, or are our hands tied every time we must make a decision? László Bernáth, a researcher at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and a lecturer at two Hungarian universities investigates the questions of will and responsibility. He claims that humans can indeed freely determine the direction of their will. But don't upbringing, inherited patterns, and so many constraining circumstances limit our decisions? If László's proposition doesn't seem logical at first, worry not: at Brain Bar, the Oxford University competition-winning philosopher will reveal why his is the rational explanation for humans’ actions.
