Title: MORAL LUCK:ARETAIC JUDGMENTS AND RESPONSIBILITY TOUT COURT
Authors: Pitkoff, Joshua

Department: Philosophy
Class Year: 2016
Abstract: This paper addresses the question of moral luck, or whether moral responsibility can outrun control. I outline Michael Zimmerman’s attempt to deny moral luck in the realm of hypological judgments (about praise and blame), and argue that his notion of ‘responsibility tout court’ simply registers aretaic judgments (of moral character) instead. This problematizes both his denial of hypological moral luck and his secondary thesis affirming responsibility without freedom.
