On Two Solutions To Akrasia

Philosophical Writings 33 (3) (2006)
Abstract
In ancient and contemporary discussions of weakness of will, or akrasia, Aristotle and Davidson have articulated two of the more seminal accounts. Yet drawing a sharp distinction between the conditions on akratic agency, the reasons why it poses a problem, and solutions in the accounts of Aristotle and Davidson makes clear that Davidson’s rejection of Aristotle’s solution is illicit insofar as his own solution is, at root, Aristotelian
