簡介 Brief Description

Given the current knowledge about the brain, does it make sense to talk about personal responsibility? Does nature allow for human responsible actions? Do the laws of physics leave any room for us to shape our future?

On the other hand, if I want to hold a responsible attitude towards others' wellbeing, can I disregard the importance of scientific knowledge of nature? What does our current scientific knowledge have to do with our interventions on the environment? What do new discoveries in neuroscience have to do with criminal law?

Through their dialogue the two speakers will show possible answers and their implications.
