Free will puzzle

If free will is as illusory as some suggest here - theguardian.com/news/2021/apr/ - how do the philosophers concerned suggest that students might choose not to study the issue?

Hmm

I’ve been wondering about a question raised elsewhere - is "melancholy" more poetic than "sadness"? The concepts are not the same, but what is the difference?

I suppose I would tend to see melancholy as an innate trait and outlook, whilst sadness is more a reaction to circumstances. Which is the more poetic? Depends on the poem.
