Free will and determinism assignment

 

For this writing assignment you must watch the video below and read Sartre’s Essay on Freedom & Responsibility

What are the implications of the research shown in the video for our understanding of free will? Why does Skinner deny the possibility of free will? How does a strictly causal explanation of human behavior conflict with Jean Paul Sartre’s assertion that freedom is the source of our moral responsibility? Do you believe Sartre is right about free will being the main factor that makes us who we are or do environmental and genetic factors have a more significant impact on our character?
