Do we have free will? Answering this question using logic drives us into paradox. Instead, the author takes us to a world where people know they really do have free will. As a result their science takes a different direction, leading them to an evolutionary theory totally different from ours. In this theory, is there intelligent design? Yes. Is it the work of a supernatural agent? No. Instead, through an audacious surmise, the author arrives at a theory of evolution close to common sense, that supports traditional thinking about the self. Who should care? Anyone whose work affects the opinions others have of themselves. And the humanities generally, under threat from encroachment on their turf by the sciences, all of whose specialties depend on traditional notions of free will. This ingenious story can serve as a model for how the balance between the arts and sciences can be reset.

    I'm relieved that most people don't leave science degrees writing theories based on what feels good, or calling two theories equal because one can't be %100 proved right and the other can't be %100 proved wrong. To call this rational is as much fiction as the rest of it.
