Abstract. Neuroscience development emphasizes the problem of the human’s free will. Results of neurobiological experiments are often interpreted as justification of the human’s lack of free will; S. Harris shares this viewpoint. However, analysis of discussions on free will that have unfolded in neuroscience and cognitive studies as well as critical analysis of arguments provided by neuroscience representatives - opponents of the free will doctrine - show that findings of modern neuroscience and cognitive studies do not contradict the postulate of free will as the subject’s inherent quality.
