Psychological determinism

Daniel Bader discusses two forms of psychological determinism:[1]

  • Orectic psychological determinism is the view that we always act upon our greatest drive. This is often called psychological hedonism, and if the drive is specified for self-interest: psychological egoism.
  • Rational psychological determinism claims that we always act according to our "strongest" or "best" reason.
