Do we really have free choice?

In his new book The Myth of Choice: Personal Responsibility in a World of Limits (Yale University Press, October 2011), Boston College Law Professor Kent Greenfield shows that the so-called “choices” that confront us daily are often not choices at all. Greenfield takes a provocative and culturally savvy look at how many of our decisions are constrained, manipulated, and forced upon us by a gauntlet of biological, economical, and cultural influences. Greenfield is an expert in the areas of constitutional law, business law and legal theory. The latest Boston College Law School Magazine features a cover story on Greenfield, as well as an excerpt from his book.  Listen to Greenfield talk about The Myth of Choice.
