Excuses in law and in morality: a response to Marcia Baron [Book Review]

Criminal Law and Philosophy 1 (1):41-47 (2007)
Abstract
In this analysis of Marcia Baron’s account of excuses, I seek to do two things. I try to draw out the nature of the distinction between forgiving and excusing. I also defend the distinction between excuses (like duress), and denials of responsibility (like insanity)
