Open access to recent article on responsibility and personal relationships

Press clipping: Research

Publication date30/07/13

In 'Sharing responsibility and holding responsible' I consider how questions of holding responsible operate in personal relationships. I follow Arthur Ripstein's idea that each of us bears a special responsibility for his or her own life. But I also argue that friends, lovers and family members can share in that responsibilty - and one way in which they do so is by, on occasion, reproaching us for our faults and failings.

Recently published by the Journal of Applied Philossophy (early view), the article is now freely downloadable at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/japp.12019/abstract. Many thanks to Lancaster University for supporting this open access.
