1 Meyer cites Austin, Kenny, and Loening as those who doubt that Aristotle developed a theoretical account.
2 Meyer points out that Aristotle does not present the causal relation of voluntariness as a sufficient condition for moral responsibility, but only as a necessary condition.
3 For a different interpretation of Aristotle's attitude to “full” moral responsibility that is nonetheless in sympathy with some of Meyer's conclusions, see Broadie, Sarah, Ethics With Aristotle (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991), pp. 159–74.
4 Meyer cites in particular Williams, Bernard, Ethics and the Limits of Philosophy (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1985).
