A. Clarify the primary differences between Plato and Aristotle regarding whether moral knowledge is sufficient to ensure proper action.Touch on Aristotle’s diagnostic claims in this part, and his notion of akrasia or “weakness of the will.”After explaining this, take a position offer an argument regarding whether or not you think that akrasia is points to a fundamental flaw in our nature, or if it can be overcome with sufficient knowledge and habituation.What is important here is your view of the matter independently of Plato or Aristotle. Please make textual references to support your interpretive remarks.

Outline
Kant’s View of Moral Evil
In his work Religion within the Boundaries of Mere Reason, Immanuel Kant addresses the
nature of human beings through the concept of “radical evil.” Through the use of Biblical quotes
and paraphrases, Kant is categorical that the human nature is frail and susceptible to impurity or
evil. As such, due to this frailty, human beings fail to do what they know they ought to do.
