Action Explanation, Weakness of the Will and Bounded Rationality
12:05 pm, 817R Cathedral of Learning
Abstract: I'll begin by reviewing and criticizing
some of the proposals that have been put forward in the literature
to account for the problem of the weakness of the will. I'll
then proceed to present my own view according to which weak willed
actions should best be viewed as implementing judgments resulting
from the activation of fast and frugal heuristics.
