|Other Titles:||Qualities of the Will:A Predicament of Having Choices and Its Resolution|

In certain situations, an agent cannot bring himself to choose from available courses of action even if he cares about what he is willing to do. If, however, he does choose, the choice he makes is inevitably arbitrary despite his deep and sincere willingness to attach importance to it. This is a predicament of having choices, which, if left unchecked, will corrupt what we each most fundamentally are as individual persons. The present study is an attempt to get a better understanding of the predicament and find a resolution to it. I argue that wholeheartedness as a desirable quality of the will and the decisions we make in regard to ourselves are two important keys to resolving the predicament.
