Korsgaard on Kant:

He defines a free will as a rational causality which is effective without being determined by any alien cause. Anything outside of the will counts as an alien cause, including the desires and inclinations of the person. … the will is practical reason… (Sources, 97-8)

It is this kind of gibberish that makes me detest Kant. The will is just what desires. It feels feelings and desires pleasures and drives one to satisfy them.

The “will” is not “reason” any more than the “will” is “body” or a flying carpet. The three faculties in man are will, intellect and indeed reason, and power manifested through the body. It’s madness to confuse them.
