This Core Concept video focuses on book 7 of Aristotle's "Nicomachean Ethics," in which Aristotle discusses lack of self control, called "akrasia" in Greek. He discusses how this lack of self-control can take place, and whether it involves knowing something to be bad or wrong and nevertheless choosing it.
