Aristoteles’ Konzeption der Zurechnung
[Aristotle’s Theory of Accountability]
Series:Quellen und Studien zur Philosophie 135
Aims and Scope
The aim of this study is to show that Aristotle disposes of an original conception of moral accountability. Aristotle holds that for an agent to be ethically accountable for an action or state it is neither necessary nor sufficient that the action or state is voluntary. Acting on the basis of a decision is sufficient (but not necessary) for being ethically accountable for the action.
