Norms, Causes, and Alternative Possibilities

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 33 (4):346-347 (2010)
Abstract
I agree with Knobe's claim in his “Person as Scientist, Person as Moralist” article that moral considerations are integral to the workings of people's competence in making causal judgments. However, I disagree with the particular explanation he gives of the way in which moral considerations influence causal judgments. I critically scrutinize his explanation and outline a better one.
