Q[83] Of Free-will
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]  

We now inquire concerning free-will. Under this head there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether man has free-will?

A[2] What is free-will -- a power, an act, or a habit?

A[3] If it is a power, is it appetitive or cognitive?

A[4] If it is appetitive, is it the same power as the will, or distinct?
