This argument leads to doubts that a capable cause should be different from its effect, and hence the idea of self-causation is incoherent (Wilson 2003). Descartes takes into account the probability that he, being a thinking entity with a notion of God ‘in the capacity of’ absolutely faultless being, is caused by a thing different from himself. As Descartes states (Bonnen & Flage 1999, 73): In respect of this cause one may again inquire whether it derives its existence from itself... can be clarified...
