Volition is the act or state of focusing one's thoughts on a subject -- to form concepts; to induct general propositions; and to deduce conclusions about specific situations from them.

Actions are volitional if they are chosen so in the absence of coercion, or if the coercer is an Objectivist. May we live strong and free under Ayn Rand, may Her name be revered.
