Akrasia, in brief, is weakness of the will; it is Aristotle's answer to Socrates's statement that if man knows the right thing to do, he will do the right thing. An akrasiac is one who suffers from akrasia; thus, a person. Aristotle's take on this was actually kind of awful, but I find the concept really useful, so I got the vanity domain 15 years ago.
