Another one that I think has yet to escape Benton house is 'cesire', along the same lines.

All I'm finding on the Internets is Aimé Césaire - elaboration?

I would assume that cesire is a modified version of desire, possibly a tendency to act to further a certain cause even if you desire something else.

It's from p642 of the pdf you linked.
