Voluntarism = volunteerism?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


Just wondering what the adcom might be looking for in this answer? I looked up voluntarism, which means "the principle of relying on voluntary action".


Are they looking for self-directed motivation in our activities, or are they actually looking for the spirit of volunteerism, but actually chose the wrong word?


Thanks for your help!

voluntarism n. 1 a) a voluntary participation in a course of action B) a doctrine or system depending on such participation 2. any theory which holds that reality is ultimately the nature of will or that will is the primary factor of experience


thinking of writing an essay on def #2 makes me want to cry:D
