Among the many "wills," there are will to power, will to pleasure, and will to meaning. Any others?

I would say "will to philosophy." I think humans are born philosophers. Will to meaning is too narrow to capture the full variance of our questioning nature. It does not capture the absurd and relates poorly to the nihilist. Another one: "will to belong." Acceptance-rejection are ancient and pervasive preoccupations. So, what else?

    How about these:
    1) the will to be willing;
    2) the will to be satisfied with whoever you will be;
    3) the will to be inferior, as opposed to feeling superior;
    and, of course, if you’re an aspiring actor, let’s not forget
    this one:
    4) the will to portray Will Rogers in a one act play.

    The will to move on.

    There are as many wills as actions and situations.
    What about the will to love, among other wills?

  4. Blappers Says:

    It’s all will to power as far as I’m concerned. The power to pleasure and meaning.

    Finally, there remains only one major will for a human being and it’s definitely; none other than SELF REALIZATION. So, mankind has ever worshipped such a person who has revealed the truth of SELF.
