Towards a structural ownership condition on moral responsibility
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Philosophy.
Number of Authors: 12019 (English)In: Canadian journal of philosophy, ISSN 0045-5091, E-ISSN 1911-0820, Vol. 49, no 4, p. 458-480Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In this paper, I propose and defend a structural ownership condition on moral responsibility. According to the condition I propose, an agent owns a mental item if and only if it is part of or is partly grounded by a coherent set of psychological states. As I discuss, other theorists have proposed or alluded to conditions like psychological coherence, but each proposal is unsatisfactory in some way. My account appeals to narrative explanation to elucidate the relevant sense of psychological coherence.
