Quality of Will, Private Blame and Conversation: Reply to Driver, Shoemaker, and Vargas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this paper, I defend my book Conversation and Responsibility (Oxford University Press, 2012) in response to three critics: Julia Driver, David Shoemaker, and Manuel Vargas. Driver raises questions about my account of private blame. Shoemaker finds problems with my account of quality of will. And Vargas questions the conversational nature of my account.
