Equality, Responsibility, and the Law by Arthur Ripstein

Book Description

This book examines responsibility and luck as these issues arise in tort law, criminal law, and distributive justice. The central question is: whose bad luck is a particular piece of misfortune? Arthur Ripstein argues that there is a general set of principles to be found that clarifies responsibility in those cases where luck is most obviously an issue: accidents, mistakes, emergencies, and failed attempts at crime. In revealing how the problems that arise in tort and criminal law as well as distributive justice invite structurally parallel solutions, the author also shows the deep connection between individual responsibility and social equality. This is a challenging and provocative book that will be of special interest to moral and political philosophers, legal theorists, and political scientists.

Books By Author Arthur Ripstein

Private Wrongs by Arthur Ripstein Private Wrongs, Hardback (April 2016)

Tort law recognizes the many ways one person wrongs another. Arthur Ripstein brings coherence to torts' diversity in a philosophically grounded, analytically powerful theory. He shows that all torts violate the basic moral idea that each person is in charge of his or her own person and property, and never in charge of another's person or property.

Force and Freedom by Arthur Ripstein Force and Freedom, Hardback (October 2009)

Shows that Kant's thought is organized around two central claims: first, that legal institutions are not simply responses to human limitations or circumstances; and second, Kant argues for a distinctive moral principle, which restricts the legitimate use of force to the creation of a system of equal freedom.

A collection of essays exploring practical rationality and the work of David Gauthier.
