Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Akrasia in Greek Philosophy: From Socrates to Plotinus contains the table of contents, notes on the contributors, acknowledgments, and an introduction. Discussions on akrasia (lack of control, or weakness of will) in Greek philosophy have been particularily vivid and intense for the past two decades. Standard stories that presented Socrates as the philosopher who simply denied the phenomenon, and Plato and Aristotle as rehabilitating it straightforwardly against Socrates, have been challenged in many different ways.

Keywords: Aristotle; Greek philosophy; Plato
