Riassunto: This work examines the medieval understanding of Aristotle's famous discussion of "weakness of the will" ("akrasia", "incontinentia") in the 7th book of his "Nicomachean Ethics". The medieval views are outlined primarily on the basis of the commentaries on Aristotle's "Ethics" by Albert the Great, Thomas Aquinas, Walter Burley, Gerald Odonis and John Buridan. An investigation of the earlier Augustinian discussion concerning reluctant actions ("invitus facere") ends the study. Recent studies of weakness of will have neglected the medieval philosophers. This volume shows that the 14th-century discussion makes contributions that are comparable to those of 20th-century philosophers.
L'autore: Risto Saarinen, Doctor of Theology (1988), University of Helsinki, is Professor at the Institute for Ecumenical Research in Strasbourg, France. He has published on late medieval philosophy, the Lutheran Reformation and ecumenical theology.
