Traditionally, self-control is conceptualized in terms of internal processes such as willpower, or motivational mechanisms. These processes supposedly explain how agents manage to exercise self-control or, in other words, how they act on the basis of their best judgment in the face of conflicting motivation. Against the mainstream view that self-control can be explained in terms of internal processes or mechanisms, several authors have recently argued for the inclusion of situated factors in our understanding of self-control. In this paper, we review such recent attempts and argue that even though they integrate situational features, these accounts hold on to an orthodox, 'internalist' view of cognition. Instead, we will argue that in order to develop a really situated account of self-control, it is necessary to radically rethink what self-control is. We will outline requirements for a really situated account of self-control and discuss some implications for empirical research.
