Patterns, acts, and self-control: Rachlin's theory

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (1):131-132 (1995)

Abstract
Regarding Rachlin's behavioral act/pattern theory of self-control, it is argued that some cases of self-control involve pattern/ pattern conflicts rather than merely act/pattern conflicts and that some patterns must be viewed as internal representational states of mind (plans) rather than merely as patterns of actual overt behavior
