Fall 2022: An advanced introduction to theories of responsibility, focusing in particular on normative approaches to responsibility that aim to sidestep metaphysical worries about freedom of the will. Topics will include: the nature of responsibility and whether there are multiple types; whether there’s something distinctive about moral (vs. nonmoral) responsibility; forward-looking vs. backward-looking theories of responsibility; holding responsible vs. being responsible; the nature and ethics of blame and praise; and how blame is related to punishment.
