Moral address, moral responsibility, and the boundaries of the moral community

Ethics 118 (1):70-108 (2007)
Abstract
This paper attempts to provide a more plausible theory of moral accountability and the crucial role in it of moral address by taking seriously four "marginal" cases of agency: psychopaths, moral fetishists, and individuals with autism and mild intellectual disabilities. Each case motivates the addition of another key accountability capacity.
