Mapping Responsibility by Herbert Fingarette
Book DescriptionWritten for philosophers as well as general readers interested in social and moral issues, Mapping Responsibility is a thoughtful exploration of the ambiguous terrain of moral responsibility. As a philosophical idea, responsibility poses vexing questions: What does it mean to be a responsible person - that is, one who is justly held accountable and possibly punishable for an action? In exploring this and other important questions, author Herbert Fingarette employs an interdisciplinary range of ideas. He uses the theoretical standpoints of moral philosophy, moral psychology, and psychoanalytic psychology and also taps into legal scholarship on criminal justice to discuss retribution, punishment, and the state.

This study in philosophical psychology asks the question: How can one deceive oneself if the very idea of deception implies that the deceiver knows the truth? The resolution of this paradox leads to fundamental insights into the mind at work.
