Is free will an axiomatic concept? Is it a conceptualized sensation? Can it be proven? Is it (introspectively) obvious?

I can recommend the following lecture from the Ayn Rand Institute Estore: https://estore.aynrand.org/p/353/free-will-mp3-download Its pretty turough and really helped me understand some parts that I was struggling with.

Volition is, indeed, an axiomatic concept.

Awesome. Thanks.

Peikoff's book is indeed awesome. I also like the way he, here, highlights the four essential characteristics of an axiom: primary, fundamental, self-evident, and inescapable.
