  • Posted In 5 Years to Psy 1001 Section 04-05 Spring 2012

    This case is interesting because we can't be sure whether crime runs in the family. Many argue that the way kids are brought up is the main factor deciding the kind of life they will lead. There was, however,one Bogle...
  • Commented on Harry Potter vs Free Will
    The dispute between free will and determinism is always puzzling because we can never find out which is prevalent in our lives. For example, would both Harry and Voldemort be able to live if neither paid attention to the prophecy?...
