Ethics; PF Strawson, "Freedom and Resentment"

timer Asked: Aug 19th, 2015

Question description

Strawson says, "The picture painted by the optimists is painted in a style appropriate to a situation envisaged as wholly dominated by objectivity of attitude.... But a thoroughgoing objectivity of attitude, excluding as it does the moral reactive attitudes, excludes at the same time essential elements in the concepts of moral condemnation and moral responsibility. This is the reason for the conceptual shock" [655]. Explain what he means in this passage, and how it fits within his overall view of moral responsibility.
