    Moral Worth and Doing the Right Thing by Accident.Jessica Isserow - forthcoming - Australasian Journal of Philosophy:1-14.
    ABSTRACTKantian conceptions of moral worth are thought to enjoy an advantage over their rivals in virtue of accommodating two plausible intuitions—that the praiseworthiness of an action is never accidental, and that how an agent might have acted in other circumstances does not determine the moral worth of her actual conduct. In this paper, I argue that neither the Kantian nor her rivals can adequately accommodate both intuitions, in as much as non-accidentality presupposes counterfactual robustness. If we are to adequately accommodate (...)

Not only is acting purely from a sense of duty superior to acting from love and sympathetic feelings, (...)
