Weakness of Will

In Hugh LaFolette (ed.), International Encyclopedia of Ethics. Wiley-Blackwell (forthcoming)
Abstract
One difficulty in understanding recent debates is that not only have many terms been used to refer to weakness of will – “akrasia” and “incontinence” have often been used as synonyms of “weakness of will” – but quite different phenomena have been discussed in the literature. This is why the present entry starts with taxonomic considerations. The second section turns to the question of whether it is possible to freely and intentionally act against one’s better judgment.
