Research Seminar Spring 2020 (4): The act requirement
4 February 2020, 4:00 PM–6:00 PM GMT
The fourth meeting of the project research seminar this term (Spring 2020) will take place from 16.00 to 18.00, on Tuesday 4 February, 2020, in the seminar room at the Department of Philosophy, UCL (19 Gordon Square).
For this meeting, we will focus on questions about the act requirement: Does criminal responsibility depend on the performance of a voluntary act? What is a voluntary act, in the relevant sense? Is there a convincing rationale for the requirement?
