How Can Will Be & Imagination Play, The Idea of the Will Implies Agency and Choice Between Possible Actions. It Also Implies a Kind of Determination to Carry Out an Action Once It has Been Chosen; a Posi-Tive Drive or Desire to Accomplish an Action. The Saying “Where There'sa Will There'sa Way” Expresses This Notion as a Piece of Folk Wisdom. These Are Pragmatically and Experientially Informed Dimensions of the Idea. But in Ad-Dition, the Concept of the Will as It Appears in a Number of Cross-Cultural and Historical Contexts Implies a Further Framework, the Framework of Cosmol. [REVIEW]
Kevin P. Groark, Willful Souls : Dreaming and the Dialectics of Self-Experience Among the Tzotzil Maya of Highland Chiapas, Mexico.
Willful Souls, As the Epigraph Suggests, in West-Ern Ethnopsychology the Ultimate Responsibility for the Dream is Understood to Lie Within the Mind of the Dreamer. Despite the Ap-Parent Alterity of Dream Experience, It is Seen as an Expression of the Indi-Vidual's Unconscious Desires and Drives. For Freud, This Assumption Opened the Door to the Study of the Dreamwork and a Focus on Mechanisms of Dream Formation: Condensation, Displacement, Symbolism, Secondary Elabo-Ration, and so on (Freud 1900). But What Happens ... [REVIEW]

While This Tripartite Set has Long Informed Philosophical and Later Psychological Models of the Fundamental Structures of Subjective Experience, the Faculty of Will has Remained Largely ... [REVIEW]
Moral Willing & As Narrative, It is No Easy Job to Situate a Discus-Sion of the Will Within Anthropology, Which is Perhaps Why the Editors of This Volume Chose the Title They Did. It is a Subject Some of Us Might Want to Move Toward, but There is No Sense of Arrival. Even the Paths Toward It Are Dauntingly Elusive. One is Either Faced with Too Much Relevant Literature or Too Little. On the Too Little Side, There has Been Scant Explicit Consideration of Willing as a Cultural Phenomenon, in Contrast to Philosophy and Psychology Where ... [REVIEW]
Transforming Will, Samoans Have a Word for “Will”—Loto—but Anthropologists Have Not Always Translated It Thusly, Which Puzzled Me When I First Began Doing Ethnography in American Sāmoa in the 1980s. I Was Taking a Language Class Kindly Oﬀered to Stateside Teachers by a High-Ranking Member of the Government. He Decided to Teach Us a Love Song, Chanting the Language Into Our Heads. He Gave Us the Samoan Version and an English Translation with Every Word Glossed but One—Loto. After Class, I Asked Him to Translate It. He ... [REVIEW]
