9780521327206: Responsibility, Character, and the Emotions: New Essays in Moral Psychology

This volume of original essays addresses a range of issues concerning the responsibility individuals have for their actions and for their characters. Among the central questions considered are the following: What scope is there for regarding a person as responsible for his or her character given genetic and environmental factors? Does an account of responsibility provide a legitimate basis for the retributive emotions? Are we ever justified in feeling guilty for occurences over which we have no control? Does responsibility for the consequences of our acts require that they were intended or simply expected? How have a number of influential previous philosophers, including Aristotle, Maimonides, and Spinoza, approached these questions?

Review:

"...an invaluable, possibly ground-breaking, collection of hitherto unpublished essays by authors (philosophers, lawyers, and psychologists), many of whom are well known for their work in the area. The essays are all highly orginal or suggestive, and the introduction contains a brief summary of each." Ethics, July 1989

"...Schoeman has put together a collection of essays, which contains an index of names, that will repay careful study because important new issues are raised and important old issues are raised in a new light. This collection is very highly recommended. It should occasion much fruitful philosophical discussion." Laurence Thomas, Ethics, July 1989
