Title: Sam Shpall
Akrasia and Moral Motivation

The motivation problem is normally thought of as a problem about explaining  
the apparent connection between moral judgment and motivation. This problem  
has structured a great deal of thinking in contemporary metaethics and  
moral psychology. But it has eventuated in seemingly intractable disputes  
about, for example, the possibility of genuine amoralism. I critique some  
recent attempts to make progress on these disputes. And I try to suggest a  
new way forward, which draws insights from thinking about the irrationality  
of akrasia. One central lesson is that discussions of the motivation  
problem should move away from the focus on moral judgment specifically. A  
more tentative and controversial conclusion is that the problem can de  
dissolved, as the connection between judgment and motivation requires no  
special explanation.
