Intuitions are fallible and changeable. Experimental philosophy deals with these conflicting and fallible intuitions. In this study, we are questioning why people have conflicting intuitions about free will/moral responsibility, namely compatibilist and incompatibilist intuitions. Moving on with this question, we propose a dual process model in which reason and emotions interact. To support our model, we replicated a previous study (Nichols and Knobe, 2007) with some experimental set ups, not present in the original study. We believe our experimental evidence supports our dual interacting-process model proposing the interaction of reason and emotions.
