Verantwortung und Sanktion

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapter

Abstract

The papers offers a critique of a view called sanctionism according to which moral obligations are generated by the fear of sanctions. I argue that this view cannot capture the nature of important moral concepts and practices. I discuss the practice of responsibility-attributions to show this.
