Synopsis

Are we ever morally responsible for what we do? In the first part of this course we will draw out and examine the philosophical implications of ordinary assumptions about free agency, reasons for action, and responsibility for action. In the second part we will consider the impact of certain conditions, for example addiction, oppression, or mental illness, on free agency and moral responsibility. www.arts.monash.edu.au/phil/undergraduate/
