Research Seminar Spring 2020 (10): Responsibility and liability

24 March 2020, 4:00 PM6:00 PM GMT

The tenth and final meeting of the project research seminar this term (Spring 2020) will take place from 16.00 to 18.00, on Tuesday 24 March, 2020, in the seminar room at the Department of Philosophy, UCL (19 Gordon Square).

For this meeting, we will focus on questions about responsibility and liability: What is the relationship between responsibility and liability? Is moral responsibility always or normally “strict”? Does Duff’s distinction between responsibility and liability have any bearing on traditional philosophical problems about moral responsibility?


  • Duff, R. A. 2007. Answering for Crime: Responsibility and Liability in the Criminal Law. Hart. Ch. 1 “Responsibility and Liability.”
  • Hart, H. L. A. 2008 (1967). “Postscript: Responsibility and Retribution.” In Punishment and Responsibility (2nd edn.; Oxford UP).

John Hyman will introduce the topic.

For the schedule for the whole term, see this post.
