holy will
In the ethics of Kant, a holy will would be spontaneously inclined to obey the dictates of morality; it would not have to struggle against countervailing desires and inclinations, or the innate human tendency to evil. This moral perfection (unlike a good will ) is not a possible achievement for human beings.
