Conscious will in the absence of ghosts, hypnotists, and other people

  • Johannes Schultz (a1), Natalie Sebanz (a2) and Chris Frith (a1)


We suggest that certain experiences reported by patients with schizophrenia show that priority, consistency, and exclusivity are not sufficient for the experience of willing an action. Furthermore, we argue that even if priority, consistency, and exclusivity cause the experience of being the author of an action, this does not mean that conscious will is an illusion.
