PEREDA, Carlos. Do free minds exist? Commentary to "The Ability to Deliberate" by Martin Seel. Tópicos (México) [online]. 2009, n.36, pp.143-154. ISSN 0188-6649.

The author explores some unexpected ramifications of Seel's paper. Pereda considers what he believes may be reconstructed in Seel as an argument for the existence of free minds. He shapes this reconstruction in a somewhat extravagant way and strongly departing from Seel's text, taking Moore's external world argument as a model (I). Then he briefly considers the form of both arguments (II), to later take up again the concepts of deliberation and reason that Seel eploys (III). Finally, Pereda returns to ask in what sense Moore's and Seel's arguments may be defended (IV) and what consequences this would have.
