Garrath Williams - 'Can't and Won't: Understanding Attributions of Responsible Agency'

This paper examines the attribution of unexercised capacities in our thinking about responsibility. Many writers - and perhaps our common sense - tie responsibility to the idea that a wrong-doer 'can' do otherwise. How, then, are we to understand judgements which claim or presuppose an ability that was not, in fact, evidenced?

This event will take place in C26 Furness College.
