blame and responsibility, right to privacy


Faculty of Philosophy, University of Salzburg

My research focuses on responsibility and blame. I am particularly interested to better understand how the two relate to each other and if a good account of our blame responses (such as anger emotions) helps to make sense of classical questions about responsibility and free will.
