    WEAKNESS OF THE WILL. The primary philosophical topic explored under the rubric "weakness of the will" is roughly what Aristotle called classical Greek term is formed from the alpha privative (basically, a negation sign) and kratos, meaning "strength" or "power."The power at issue is the power to control oneself in the face of actual or anticipated temptation.
