Imposing Risk

A Normative Framework

John Oberdiek

Oxford Legal Philosophy

  • The only book on the morality of risk imposition from a non-consequentialist perspective
  • Challenges moral theory's assumptions about risk and presents a striking new argument that many of the seemingly independent problems in this area are, in fact, interdependent
  • Analyzes the complex issues involved in responding to risk in tort and administrative law, enriching the understanding of central legal problems such as the place of negligence in tort
