Towards Implementing Free Will - Bruce Edmonds

Philosophical appendix

There is no stopping some people philosophising, however inappropriate or unhelpful this is in particular contexts. Such people seem to think that it is both possible and useful to formulate generally and reliably true principles (i.e. principles completely without exceptions regardless of context) about the world using argument. For these people I briefly outline my position below, for full details they will have to come and argue with me.
  Thus the practical, common-sense conception is a better representation of free-will than many of the idealised, philosophical characterisations of it. When involved in a process of implementation, it is wise to base one's work on the best representation available.
