Galen Strawson; The value of holding each other morally accountable
While Galen Strawson argues that we are not morally responsible for what we do, P.F. Strawson argues for the value of holding each other morally accountable. It’s important to note that while Galen Strawson argues against the existence of true moral responsibility, he does not say anything about the value of our norms and practices which assume its existence. One implication of the nonexistence of moral responsibility could be that these same norms and values are practically useless. In your essay, you must either argue for or against P.F. Strawson’s argument for the practical value of moral responsibility, assuming that Galen Strawson’s theoretical account is correct. Your essay will be graded on the following rubric, below. All components must be satisfied for a passing grade of 100.
