This concluding chapter explains why readers who are not skeptics about free will are in a position to conclude that core weak-willed actions are not only psychologically possible but actual as well. If the author is right, we should believe that core weak-willed actions occur, and our theories about the springs of action, the power of better judgments, human agency, human rationality, and practical reasoning should accommodate their occurrence. As we improve our understanding of why core weak-willed actions occur, we will be better equipped to deal with practical problems that such actions pose.
