Conversation with a scientifically trained friend (STF), introduction

In August of 2009, I corresponded with a scientifically trained friend (STF) about the mind-body problem and free will.  The correspondence was occasioned by my first post on this blog, the one about John Searle’s interview on “Conversations with History.”  With STF’s permission, I am reproducing the correspondence here, with a few minor editorial changes that do not affect the content.   I will post each long email from the correspondence separately.

I hope and expect to post intermittently about the mind-body problem, and the related question of free will.  Given the vast array of projects I have at present, I can only make small forays into the huge literature surrounding these subjects.
