Moral Responsibility And Choice

Moral Responsibility And Choice

Discussion of moral responsibility has traditionally centred around actions and the possibility of alternative actions.

I argue that a person is morally responsible directly for their choices and only indirectly for resulting actions. This subtle shift helps to clarify many issues such as moral luck, thwarted choice and coercion.
