SUNY Press, Jan 1, 1993 - Philosophy - 258 pages
Emminent contemporary philosophers grapple with an area that has been little considered: whether and to what extent our moral notions of responsibility, justification, blame, and so forth, are subject to luck. Some of the articles have been previously published as book chapters, or in journals. Lacks an index. Paper edition (unseen), $12.95. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
