This chapter examines data Daniel Wegner uses to support his thesis that conscious will is an illusion. The data are shown to be compatible with its being the case that all intentional actions have intentions among their causes. The chapter also challenges recent claims by Wegner about free will and the self.

Keywords:   action, consciousness, free will, intention, self, Daniel Wegner
