Various edits made[edit]

See edit summaries for careful explanations. Note, the SA and SO abbreviations appear in the lede, then disappear (!). If these are important in the discussion of schizophrenia (as suggested in the lede), why is there no mention of this dichotomy in the main article (which takes, rather, a decidedly more neuroanatomical tack)?

Finally, the lack of page numbers is quite troubling, as is what appears to be a penchant for interested editors to do "WP:OR in selecting primary sources for inclusion (rather than waiting and summarizing established results from good secondary sources).

Here is note content {} regarding a deleted image that appeared hidden in the text, which seems no longer necessary (see bullet, and box at right, and click Edit of this Talk Section to see the markup details).

Lede is not a true lede (introduction)[edit]

The lede in place covers primary defining conent (SA, SO) in depth of three paragraphs, a dichotomy which then appears in a single sentence later in the article (in the Definition section). These concepts do not appear elsewhere, again in the article. More critically, the lede lacks summary material on the remainder of the article, and in both of these ways (over-emphasis of SA/SO, and dearth of anything else), fails in any real sense to function as a lede.

I suggest that (i) these three paragraphs of "lede" text be moved to its own section, entitled "Agency versus ownership", (ii) a short lede be written, to summarize this section, as well as all of the rest of the sections (whose material currently is absent from the lede). This will also entail a bit of work integrating the new section into the article (see the Definitions section). "71.239.87.100 ("talk) 12:10, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Section "Other aspects of agency"[edit]

Connecting the article to the idea of proxy agency might be the result of conflating the notions of agency and sense of agency. It is unclear how getting others to act on one's own behalf is related to the feeling of being the one who is acting. Certainly, I don't normally get a feeling that I paid the bill when I get you to pay the bill. Perhaps this section should be moved to an article that discusses agency, rather than the sense of agency. Similarly, it is not clear how the sense of agency is relevant to moral responsibility. The section states that agency underlies responsibility. How does this connect to the sense of agency? Orgonaut ("talk) 10:01, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Greek translation[edit]

here are many options:

  1. πίστη-πεποίθηση-ψευδαίσθηση αυτενέργειας
  2. πίστη στην (ατομική) αυτενέργεια, πίστη στην αυτενέργεια του εαυτού
note: αυτενεργός πίστη might be considered a mistranslation, so we don't use it — Preceding "unsigned comment added by "2A02:587:410B:9500:C57C:8101:400E:1099 (talk) 18:18, 31 March 2017 (UTC)
