This is an absolutely wonderful book. Rumors had started flying that the ship was headed back to the Philippines, then on to the massive invasion of Japan and its home islands, code names Operation Coronet and Olympic. Is there such a thing as moral luck? Torrey submits to the ministrations of Maggie Haynes—who, in the last scene, prepares to shave his face using his prized seven-blade set of German straight razors, which his rescuers preserved and returned to him. The moral reasons not to defraud come from things like the fact that the other person is a human being, pawnbroker or no.

But now consider a different would-be assassin who does not even try to kill anyone, but only because his circumstances did not favor this option. But what comes along with that form of justification of punishment is attentiveness to the amount of say over the law that the punished have. Any adult, for instance, who can fill out a voter registration form can vote in California and most kindergartners could get that job done. Looks like it anyway, given his responses in this exchange. However, Wolf argues that ascriptions of moral responsibility go deeper than such attributions can reach: When…we consider an individual worthy of blame or of praise, we are not merely judging the moral quality of the event with which the individual is so intimately associated; we are judging the moral quality of the individual herself in some more focused, noninstrumental, and seemingly more serious way. The fighting had been vicious, and often it was hand to hand.

Excerpted by permission. Criminal Culpability: Who Deserves Punishment? As just noted, even if determinism is true, agents may often act as they choose, and it is equally compatible with determinism that an agent who performed act A on the basis of his choice to do so might have performed a different action on the condition that contrary to what actually happened she had chosen to perform the other action.

And so he is held responsible or accountable, by himself or others. Jay Wallaceand Susan Wolf Down in his compartment, four decks below the bridge where McVay stood fretting about the problems of the ship, Brown now stripped and dressed in his navy blues--blue woolen pants and a jumper, the standard uniform for a sailor on liberty--and then over these he pulled on his dungarees and denim work shirt.
