As Jay Wallace has argued, though, this “hydraulic model” of the aetiology of intentional action has a serious flaw: it fails to leave room for genuine deliberative agency. Drawing on recent developments in the debate on self-control, the article argues that Wallace's criticism can be addressed once we combine the hydraulic model with a so-called “divided mind” account of self-control.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Deliberative Agency, Self‐Control, and the Divided Mind</dcterms:title> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:issued>2021</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2022-09-08T09:55:14Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Altehenger, Hannah</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2022-09-08T09:55:14Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
