Editorial Reviews


"Toward an Anthropology of the Will reveals the utility of bringing philosophical and folk concepts of will into anthropological study. The authors' fresh and surprising approaches to the phenomenology and psychology of will open up new vantage points that unsettle longstanding issues in the study of self and society." (Geoffrey White University of Hawai'i at Manoa)

"The will and willing are extremely complex phenomena that have only begun to be explored. This first ever anthropological book on the topic questions what the will is, examines its characteristics and components, and begins to explain its causes and effects. This work challenges implicit assumptions, revealing that, far from being free, the will is constrained by culture, morality, and conflicting goals." (Roger Ivar Lohmann Trent University)
