I just learned from Mind Hacks that psychologist Daniel Wegner died last month. Some years ago I had the pleasure of hearing Wegner speak at the annual meeting of the Association for Psychological Science about his book, The Illusion of Conscious Will. This is a book is a classic and needs to read by anyone interested in the question of human free will.
