We use Schwinger’s action principle in quantum mechanics to obtain the quantisation from Lagrangian for the fermionic variables, as well as when it contains auxiliary coordinates. We illustrate this with a supersymmetric Lagrangian which naturally includes auxiliary variables. We further show that the action principle also leads to Feynman’s path integral quantisation, which is aesthetically pleasing.
