We must now consider the acts of the will with regard to the means.
There are three of them: to choose, to consent, and to use.
And choice is preceded by counsel.
First of all, then, we must consider choice: secondly, counsel; thirdly, consent; fourthly, use.
Concerning choice there are six points of inquiry:
A Of what power is it the act; of the will or of the reason?
A Whether choice is to be found in irrational animals?
A Whether choice is only the means, or sometimes also of the end?
A Whether choice is only of things that we do ourselves?
A Whether choice is only of possible things?
A Whether man chooses of necessity or freely?
