Consciousness: brain lesions remove free will (General)

David’s comment: long ago we agreed that the brain is the site of consciousness which uses specific areas of the brain to appear properly in thought.

dhw: Your comment threatens to reopen the whole debate concerning materialism v dualism, which can only lead to our going over the same ground again and again. Just to clarify: the question is whether consciousness is a product of the brain (which seems to be the implication in this article) or is an immaterial “soul” which works with the brain. The only agreement we had was that if there is such a thing as a “soul”, it is sited in the brain.

You keep forgetting most of the articles available for presentation are Darwinian in underlying premise.
