Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of ancient sources that is mentioned in the book Akrasia in Greek Philosophy: From Socrates to Plotinus. Ancient sources are categorised into Cicero, Euripides, Galen, and Plotinus. The discussion of akrasia is probably the most clearly dialectical enquiry in the corpus, and the Aristotelian vindication of Socrates is emblematic of the way Aristotle conceives of this method: a claim is better established the more the relevant opinions are saved. In ‘Plotinus on akrasia: the neoplatonic synthesis’, Lloyd Gerson argues that Plotinus appropriates Peripatetic and Stoic insights into his expression of Platonic moral psychology generally and into his analysis of the phenomenon of akrasia in particular.

Keywords: akrasia; Greek philosophy; Plotinus
