Topics in Criminal Law Theory: Foundations of Responsibility

This seminar will examine the foundations of moral and criminal responsibility. Our core text will be a work of criminal law theory, R. A. Duff's "Answering for Crime: Responsibility and Liability in the Criminal Law." We will also read several works of moral philosophy addressed to fundamental questions about freedom, responsibility, and blame. There will be regular short writing assignments and a final paper. Students must have a taste for difficult philosophical prose but need not have a substantial background in philosophy.
