Toward an Anthropology of the Will

Stanford University Press

This chapter discusses a phenomenologically grounded approach to willing based on Henri Burgson, Paul Ricoeur, and Alfred Schutz's writings. It claims that this approach to willing can have a significant impact in informing anthropological theorizing and research, due to the assumptions related to a number of distinct phenomenal aspects of willing. It also proposes three experiential correlates of willing: sense of own-ness, anticipation/goal directedness, and effortful-ness.

Keywords:   willing, Henri Burgson, Paul Ricoeur, Alfred Schutz, phenomenal aspects, own-ness, effortful-ness, goal directedness, anticipation
