The Sense of Freedom, or Acting under the Idea of Freedom
This chapter continues the inquiry into our commitments as rational deliberators. An argument is presented for the conclusion that we must presuppose that we are free agents in deliberating in the sense that our actions are up to us in such a way that we are responsible for them. The very nature of rational deliberation—of seeking reasons with a view to adopting and acting on the best (or at least good) ones — is such as to manifest a commitment to our freedom in this sense.
