This chapter focuses on self-determination. For many 17th-century thinkers, self-determination is the mark of free agency: a free agent is one who determines himself, and conversely. The doctrine of self-determinism was usually formulated in terms of the will. The positions of Locke, Bramhall, and Cudworth on self-determination are discussed.
