Biografia do Autor

Storrs McCall, McGill University

Storrs McCall is a professor of philosophy at McGill University whose 1994 book A Model of the Universe contained a two-stage model of free will. McCall's universe model involve indeterministic branching of the universe at various moments, which he argued could contribute to the creation of "choice-sets," i.e., alternative possibilities for evaluation as deliberate actions.
