Arthur M Young: Determinism Free Will & Fate Complete Thinking Allowed program Host-Jeffrey Mishlove

Free will and purpose are not inconsistent with a universe subject to law. In fact, says Arthur Young, your free will would be ineffective without a determinate world to act upon. Young, inventor of the Bell helicopter and author of The Reflexive Universe, also discusses the difference between determinism the belief that everything acts according to law, and pre-destination or fate.

Thinking Allowed has recently completed the massive task of remastering and digitizing all 450 programs in our series, which aired on PBS stations across the U.S. from 1986 through 2002.

The new, hi-res programs will be made available in various ways yet to be determined. We begin this access process by making available all of the programs we made featuring Arthur M. Young, teacher and mentor to both Jeffrey Mishlove and to series co-producer/director Arthur Bloch.
