Whose Will? How Free?
Science rarely allows its subject matter to show its ability to self-determine its actions. This chapter describes a method for quantifying the portion of variability in human behavior due to self-determination (or behavioral freedom of the will). The results of several programs of research reveal that humans often self-determine sizeable portions of their actions in a variety of domains. The problems of the 21st century are often group problems (e.g., environmental degradation) which humans might not be able to control volitionally.
