Temptation and the Will

American Philosophical Quarterly 27 (1):39-49 (1990)
Abstract
The authors argue, against Frank Jackson, that weakness (and strength) of will involves higher-order mental states. The authors hold that this is compatible with a decision-theoretic belief-desire psychology of human action.
