Furlong and Santos on Desire and Choice

In Walter Sinnott-Armstrong (ed.), Moral Psychology: Freedom and Responsibility. MIT Press 367-374 (2014)
Ellen Furlong and Laurie Santos helpfully summarize a number of fascinating studies of certain influences on both human and monkey behavior. As someone who works primarily in philosophy, I am not in a position to dispute the details of the studies themselves. But in this brief commentary I do want to raise some questions about the inferences Furlong and Santos make on the basis of those studies. In general, I worry that they may be overreaching beyond what their own data suggests.
