Les hommes se trompent en ce qu'ils se croient libre ;
et cette opinion consiste en cela seul qu'ils ont conscience
de leurs actions et sont ignorants des causes par lesquelles ils
sont déterminés; ce qui constitue donc leur idée de la liberté,
c'est qu'ils ne connaissent aucunes causes de leurs actions.
