Ways to be Blameworthy

Rightness, Wrongness, and Responsibility

Elinor Mason

  • Takes a novel approach to questions about praiseworthiness and blameworthiness, integrating work in ethics with work on responsibility theory
  • Contributes to a new way of thinking about responsibility: normative responsibility theory
  • Includes a sustained examination of underexplored area such as praise and praiseworthiness
  • Makes sense of some blame practices that we engage in, but seem difficult to defend philosophically
