Wegner's “illusion” anticipated: Jonathan Edwards on the will

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (5):676-676 (2004)
Wegner's The Illusion of Conscious Will (2002) ignores an important aspect of the history of the concept: the determinism of Jonathan Edwards (1754) and the later response to this determinism by William James and others. We argue that Edwards's formulation, and James's resolution of the resulting dilemma, are superior to Wegner's.
