You have no free will

According to a neurobiologist, all of our actions can be attributed to our biology

An article in Vice writes that neurobiologist Robert Sapolsky is opposed to the concept of "free will"; instead, he believes that our behavior is made up of a complex and chaotic soup of so many factors that it's downright silly to think there's a singular, autonomous "you" calling the shots. Genetics, politics, philosophy and more go into making us "us".

He breaks all of this down in his new book, Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst. To read more on what he has to say, click on this link .
