One of the most provocative and influential books of the last decade in the cognitive sciences has been Dan Wegner's 'the illusion of conscious will'.

In this lecture I will examine, whether Hume's theory really supports Wegner's conclusions. Audio podcast, recorded Friday 7 October 2011. Listen to podcast
