#251: Fun with Funishment

Hey look, new comic!

The concept behind this one – “funishment” – comes from a fun paper by the philosopher Saul Smilanksy. Smilansky puts forth the idea as a reductio of hard determinism. Astute readers will recall that this isn’t the first time I’ve turned one of Smilansky’s ideas into a comic (see here for the comic on prepunishment).

You can find a great discussion of funishment here, on the always excellent Flickers of Freedom blog, very much worth taking a look at.

Enjoy!
