The article focuses on the issue of brain determinism, by examining two recent neuroscientific
experiments (Libet’s and Haynes’ experiments about conscious acts). Such experiments
aim to show a cerebral determination of the agent’s free choices. The author argues that
even if their conclusions were true, that would not eliminate the common use of the concept
of free will and the attribution of moral responsibility.
