Synopsis:
This study looks at how the Theravada Buddhist tradition looks at and approaches the processes of volition, and more specifically, to trace the connotations of cetana (the term that is most often translated as "volition"). The fundamental question is how Theravada interprets the process of choosing between possibilities, deciding on a goal, and initiating goal-oriented action, without going against its central principle that all mental processes are governed by causes and conditions. Equally basic is the question of how Theravada interprets the dynamics of volition in the context of karma.
