Luck and the Limits of Blame

Lecture no. 18 from the course: Understanding the Dark Side of Human Nature

Luck and the Limits of Blame

Taught by Professor Daniel Breyer | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Two people go to a party, become legally drunk, and drive home. One kills a pedestrian, the other encounters no one. Should we judge them differently, or the same? 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.
