“We speak of knowing in two ways; we ascribe it both to someone who has it without using it and to someone who is using it. Here it will matter whether someone has the knowledge that his action is wrong, without attending to this knowledge, or he both has it and attends to it. For this second case seems extraordinary, but wrong action when he does not attend to his knowledge does not seem extraordinary.” 2. In NE VII.3, Aristotle makes a distinction between two ways of knowing in an attempt to describe akrasia. In your own words and with an example, describe what Aristotle means by akrasia, and how his view of it differs from the position ascribed to Socrates. Then, tell me what Aristotle means when he says that there are two ways of knowing. In what way does the person who has akrasia have knowledge? In what way don’t they have it? And how does this distinction help Aristotle to explain akrasia?2. The book needing cited is Nicomachean Ethics (2nd Edition)
