Nancey Murphy and Frank Jackson

I've mentioned Nancey Murphy before - she a physicalist who believes the universe is entirely physical - though she's a Christian minister, she believes we have no souls (read more). Here's a video of her speaking on "Nonreductive Physicalism and Free Will" .....

I was reminded of her when I saw a Philosophy Bites episode on Frank Cameron Jackson who's known for his thought experiment arguing against physicalism, Mary's Room. You can listen to the podcast here.
