James Montmarquet has argued against the Asymmetry Thesis (AT): the doctrine that belief and action are asymmetrical with respect to direct voluntary control. Montmarquet’s case against AT is representative of a prominent line of reasoning found in the recent literature on doxastic voluntarism. In this essay I defend AT. I grant that Montmarquet was successful in his reply to reasons offered in defense of AT in his essay. However, the reasons considered by Montmarquet are not exhaustive. In this paper, I offer two more considerations not taken up by Montmarquet and not typically taken up in the more recent literature that are each sufficient to establish the truth of AT.
