DETERMINED A Science of Life Without Free Will

by | Read by Kaleo Griffith

Contemporary Culture • 16.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

This thought-provoking audiobook presents listeners with a curious neuroscientific argument: Free will doesn't exist. The bestselling author, a Stanford neuroendocrinologist, argues that all life is predetermined; it's a product of conditioning and hormones, expressed as unconscious and reflexive neurological responses. With a measured pace and a tone of excitement, Kaleo Griffith keeps the audiobook's information upbeat and engaging. Griffith's joyful performance makes the author's descriptions of animal behavior, from bees to baboons, informative and fun. But the audiobook also veers solidly into academic territory and is too long and detailed to be well absorbed in audio format. Regular references to the included pdfs' visual materials and instructions to see a certain page number, don't create a smooth transition from print to audio.
