Causation and Responsibility: An Essay in Law, Morals, and Metaphysics

Oxford University Press (2009)

Abstract
The concept of causation is fundamental to ascribing moral and legal responsibility for events. Yet the precise relationship between causation and responsibility remains unclear. This book clarifies that relationship through an analysis of the best accounts of causation in metaphysics, and a critique of the confusion in legal doctrine
