from Lawrence, this Sunday PhiloMadrid meeting: Inherited behaviours

Dear friends,

This Sunday we are discussing Inherited behaviours.

The scope of this subject is of course, personal identity, on the one hand, and free will on the
other hand. If the big ticket behaviours are somehow inherited, that would leave us with a free will
whose only purpose is to deal with local and temporal actions. But are we justified in even assuming
that we have some much free will?

However, we also know that we do not necessarily inherit 100% of our parent's genes, sometimes
mutations do happen which probably gives us a degree of uniqueness. But maybe we can interpret
inherited in a slightly wider meaning. We also know that we are influenced by our environment (the
nurture part) and therefore we might inherit certain traits from the environment we've grown up in
as much as the genes we have inherited.

Take care
Lawrence
