Hodgson claims that the choosing self is separate from contents of consciousness, something active that is the bearer or experiencer of the contents of consciousness.
Hodgsons thesis is that the self determines the choice via volitional causation, but of course such causation requires that the self cant be fully determined itself or determined in its choice-making, which is why on Hodgsons theory even very powerful, persuasive reasons must be non-conclusive and undetermining.
For Hodgson, there cant be a conclusive causal story explaining choices on the basis of an algorithmic rationality, personality traits, motives, external circumstances, and other determinate factors, for that would be to succumb to a determinism that shows the agent to be part of a larger causal chain, and thus not ultimately responsible.
