Accountability, Answerability and Freedom
2016 (English)In: Social Theory and Practice, ISSN 0037-802X, E-ISSN 2154-123X, Vol. 42, no 4, p. 681-705Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

It has been argued that we cannot be morally responsible in the sense required to deserve blame or punishment if the world is deterministic, but still morally responsible in the sense of being apt targets for moral criticism. Desert-entailing moral responsibility is supposed to be more freedom-demanding than other kinds of responsibility, since it justifies subjecting people to blame and punishments, is nonconsequentialist, and has been shown by thought experiments to be incompatible with determinism. In this paper, I will show that all these arguments can be resisted.
