Abstract

In his Treatise of Human Nature, III,I,I, ‘Of Liberty and Necessity’, Hume remarks (SB p. 399):

I desire it may be observed that by the will, I mean nothing but the internal impression we feel and are conscious of, when we knowingly give rise to any new motion of our body, or new perception of our mind.
