Luck and the Limits of Blame
Lecture no. 18 from the course: Understanding the Dark Side of Human Nature
Taught by Professor Daniel Breyer | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Many philosophers have addressed the role of luck and its moral implications in our lives. As you explore their various perspectives, you might not find any easy answers. But you might think twice before placing blame.
