The illusory triumph of machine over mind: Wegner's eliminativism and the real promise of psychology

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (5):665-666 (2004)
Abstract
Wegner's thesis that the experience of will is an illusion is not just wrong, it is an impediment to progress in psychology. We discuss two readings of Wegner's thesis and find that neither can motivate his larger conclusion. Wegner thinks science requires us to dismiss our experiences. Its real promise is to help us to make better sense of them.
