Its Nature and Norms

Edited by D. Justin Coates and Neal A. Tognazzini

  • This book is the first collection of essays specifically on the topic of blame, which is a thriving field of inquiry in contemporary ethics and moral psychology.
  • It contains essays by the pioneers of the field, including T. M. Scanlon, George Sher, Angela Smith, R. Jay Wallace, and Gary Watson.
  • Scanlon's essay in particular will be of great interest, since it expands and more fully defends the influential account of blame that he presented in his book Moral Dimensions.
