Podcast on procrastination, agency, and willpower

Mark D. White

This morning I had a great time recording an iProcrastination podcast with my friend and prominent procastination researcher Timothy Pychyl regarding my chapter "Resisting Procrastination: Kantian Autonomy and the Role of the Will" in The Thief of Time: Philosophical Essays on Procrastination. In our talk, we covered the problems with economic models of procrastination, the Kantian conception of willpower and strength/virtue, and the benefits of combatting procrastination using willpower rather than coping mechanisms. Tim was a fantastic host, and it turned out wonderfully.

And be sure to check out Tim's new book, The Procrastinator's Digest!
