      §26. To avoid these, and the like absurdities, nothing can be of
greater use, than to establish in our Minds determined Ideas of the
things under Consideration. If the Ideas of Liberty, and Volition,
were well fixed in our Understandings, and carried along with us
in our Minds, as they ought, through all the Questions that are
raised about them, I suppose, a great part of the Difficulties, that
perplex Men’s Thoughts, and entangle their Understandings,
would be much easier resolved; and we should perceive where the
confused signification of terms, or where the nature of the thing
caused the obscurity.
Locke Hum II, 21, §26, p. 247
