I recall listening to the discussion on free will which was probably a bad place to start. Free will discussions tend to go nowhere even with the brightest minds involved.
But it kind of put me off the rest. I may give some of the other topics a go.
The non-theoretical character of metaphysics would not be in itself a defect; all arts have this non-theoretical character without thereby losing their high value for personal as well as for social life. The danger lies in the deceptive character of metaphysics; it gives the illusion of knowledge without actually giving any knowledge. This is the reason why we reject it. - Rudolf Carnap "Philosophy and Logical Syntax"
