The Role of Anti-Corruption Education in the Light of Aristotelian Concept of Akrasia: An Epistemic Inquiry into the Anti-corruption Initiatives in Kenya

Wycliffe Amukowa, Samson O. Gunga

Abstract


This paper undertakes an epistemic investigation of the efforts to combat corruption in Kenya in the light of Aristotle’s concept of Akrasia, and proposes a model for educational practice for the purpose of facilitating the fight against corruption. Akrasia is taken to mean a lack of command over self, leading one to act against one’s better judgment that one ought to choose virtue against vice.
