Toward an Anthropology of the Will

Stanford University Press

This chapter discusses the history of missionization in the Pacific, which is also central to an analysis on will. It studies the introduction of Christianity in Samoa and how it could possibly have changed native rendering of subjectivity and turned will into a more Western form. This chapter also takes a look at dreaming and what it can reveal about modern Samoan notions of subjectivity and will.

Keywords:   missionization, Samoa, analysis on will, subjectivity, dreaming
