    Ignorance, Self-Deception and Moral Accountability.Elizabeth A. Linehan - 1982 - Journal of Value Inquiry 16 (2):101-115.
    The argument of the paper is that, for cases of self-deception that involve grave consequences for others, judging moral accountability need not involve the claim that the person knows he is deceiving himself. ignorance can be genuine and yet be culpable. in disagreement with fingarette, i conclude further that self-deceptive disavowal does not entirely subvert moral authority over what is disavowed.

    Crime and Catholic Tradition: Restoration or Retribution?Elizabeth A. Linehan - 2005 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 79:61-72.
    The U.S. Catholic Bishops (2000) have endorsed a model of criminal justice that is restorative rather than retributive. Some interpreters of Catholic tradition defend retribution as a necessary feature of responding to crime (e.g., John Finnis). I argue in this paper that this difference is substantive, not merely linguistic. The essential question is what elements of past Catholic thinking about criminal justice are normative for today. I argue that there are strong moral reasons,consistent with both Catholic tradition and larger principles (...)

    Executing the Innocent.Elizabeth A. Linehan - 1998 - The Paideia Archive: Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy 7:21-26.
    The risk of executing innocent persons is a decisive objection to the institution of capital punishment in the United States. Consequentialist arguments for the death penalty are inconclusive at best; the strongest justification is a retributive one. However, this argument is seriously undercut if a significant risk of executing the innocent exists. Any criminal justice system carries the risk of punishing innocent persons, but the punishment of death is unique and requires greater precautions. Retributive justifications for the death penalty are (...)
