The Theory of Change Podcast

Nov 6, 2019

This episode invites listeners to question the nature of our decisions and consider if free will actually exists. Some believe humans are free to choose and act as they desire, while others argue our behavior is determined or governed by internal and external forces. We meet Dr. Duffy Wilks, a counselor, author, and retired associate professor of psychology. Dr. Wilks is a theorist specializing in free will.
