doxastic involantarism, states we are not free to chose our beliefs; schizophenics often talk of thoughts being forced upon them, they often have beliefs that are not normative in his society. And these beliefs are intricately structured & justified.
But these beliefs are unwilled, they come to him unbidden. They were involuntary.
Is this evidence for a doxastic involuntarism. Or is there much more to it than this?
What I mean by this, is that the formation of belief is an unwilled submerged function of the mind, and that its mainly operative during infancy until we attain full self-conciousness as an adult. In Schizophrenia, I'm suggesting that this mechanism reactivates in a faulty manner.
