University of Arizona Professor Shaun Nichols and Yale University Professor Josh Knobe have been awarded a grant for 2011-2012 under the title "Experimental Philosophy and the Underpinnings of Free Will." Their work is supported by the project "Free Will: Empirical and Philosophical Investigations" administered by Professor Al Mele of Florida State University under a grant from the John Templeton Foundation. Professors Nichols and Knobe will conduct a seminar for early career stage philosophers from around the world on the new techniques of experimental philosophy, especially as applied to recent results reported in the empirical literature on free will and determinism.
