FSU: Philosophy professor to study self-control with $4.5 million dollar grant

Self-control is one of the most fundamental keys to success in life. But how does self-control work and how can it be improved?

Alfred R. Mele, the William H. and Lucyle T. Werkmeister Professor of Philosophy at Florida State University, has received a three-year, $4.5 million grant from the John Templeton Foundation to investigate these questions directing a project on the Philosophy and Science of Self-Control.

“We’ll try to improve our understanding of how self-control works and of how people who are interested in improving their self-control may do so,” Mele said.
