Causation and Responsibility

An Essay in Law, Morals, and Metaphysics

Michael S. Moore

  • Develops from the philosophical analysis a powerful case for reforming the law in several key areas, including intervening causation and forseeability of harm
  • Presents a compelling argument against the use of risk analysis as an alternative to causation
