Although determinism may permeate human existence, man's moral values
raise him above the level of an animal and enable him to direct his own
life. The author suggests that psychiatrists should influence the patient
to exert his will, make conscious choices, and, above all, assume a sense
of responsibility for his own actions. In order to free the patient from
whatever conditions hinder his will and to help him make choices,
psychiatric treatment must consider man's ethical dimension.
