FREE-WILL IS OUR ILLUSION.

Why did I do that!? What was I thinking? Behavior is a curious phenomenon and we may often wonder why we do the things we do. In short, it's because of our cells.

Our behavior, the decisions we make and the actions we take, are nothing more than cellular responses. How our cells interpret their immediate environment dictates how we respond to our environment. Studies of behavior show that often we are unaware of why we make the decisions we do, and that these decisions can be easily manipulated and influenced by subtle environmental cues. What may seem like a free will decision may indeed not be so. My cells made me do it, explains the phenomenon of behavior as a matter of cellular determinism.


Why do people do what they do? This wonderful book explains the science and shows why it matters. We are our cells and this book helps explain the diversity of the human experience by starting with the cell.--Paul J. Zak, author, The Moral Molecule.

"... Robin Hayes presents an empirically based argument for deterministically fated behaviors. Insightfully drawing upon discoveries in molecular biology, his compelling case merges biology and philosophy to a new level ..."--Erik Gergus, Ph.D. Biology, Glendale Community College.

"... demonstrates how and why our behaviors are inextricably determined by their biology and why freewill -- or at least the illusion of free will -- is necessary."--Terry D. Jones, Professor of Anatomy, California State University, Stanislaus.
