Conceptual problems in the act-versus-pattern analysis of self-control

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (1):132-133 (1995)

Abstract
The primary argument against Rachlin's act-versus-pattern analysis of self-control is that it is wrong to think of a temptation as a solitary act while the alternative is conceived of as an element of a pattern. Either both are solitary acts or both are members of patterns, however different the patterns may be in their complexity and abstractness
