The title of the Thirteenth Annual ALP Lecture is:
“Motive and Wrongdoing”
Abstract: There is something like a dictum that moral requirement cannot depend on motive because we can only have a duty to do or omit something we can choose and we cannot choose to have a motive. Examining a class of duties that seem to require the presence of a motive – the duties of due care – I argue that we should re-think what we take a motive to be, and so its possible role in moral action, and then let go of the dictum.
Reception will follow
