A Frankfurt Example to End All Frankfurt Examples

Philosophia 42 (1):83-93 (2014)
Abstract
Frankfurt examples are frequently used in arguments designed to show that agents lacking alternatives, or lacking ‘regulative control’ over their actions, can be morally responsible for what they do. I will maintain that Frankfurt examples can be constructed that undermine those very arguments when applied to actions for which the agent bears fundamental responsibility
Keywords Frankfurt example  Principle of alternate possibilities  Regulative control  Responsibility  Robust agency
