Hon. Frank S. Robinson ALJ:

"CONSCIOUSNESS, SELF, AND FREE WILL."

The title of Frank Robinson's talk will be “CONSCIOUSNESS, SELF, AND FREE WILL.
”Based on Daniel Dennett’s book FREEDOM EVOLVES.

Frank S. Robinson is a graduate of NYU Law School (1970), and served at the New York Public Service Commission as staff counsel and then administrative law judge (1977-97). He is the author of eight books including Albany’s O’Connell Machine (1973), Children of the Dragon (a novel), The Case for Rational Optimism (2009), and Love Poems. Robinson is a professional coin dealer. He is married to the poet Therese Broderick and has a daughter, Elizabeth. Robinson was appointed to the U.S. Assay Commission by President Nixon in 1972. In 1969, he was the first man to walk on the moon (in his mind, anyway).
