W.O.W. Akrasia RR111

RR111 Word of the Week: Akrasia
Ever wonder why we do things that are bad for us? Smoking, drinking too much, staying up too late? Ried does not have the answer but she knows what it is called and that is our word for this week.
Learn how akrasia relates to philosophy and is not a synonym for procrastination. Oddly enough there was not even an entry for this work in the Cambridge online dictionary.
