Evil and Responsibility
Lecture no. 5 from the course: Understanding the Dark Side of Human Nature
Taught by Professor Daniel Breyer | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Are psychopaths responsible for their actions? You might be surprised to learn that many psychologists and philosophers think they are not, due to their inability to recognize important moral facts. Guided by a variety of philosophers, you will consider how much responsibility evil-doers can and should accept for their crimes—and in what ways they might not be so different from the rest of us.
