COLLECTIVE RESPONSIBILITYThis book critically examines what philosophical proponents have said about collective responsibility, as well as making sense of what ordinary people say about responsiblity when it is ascribed to groups of people. Collective responsibility is distinguished here from shared responsibility and moral taint. Parallels are examined between the actions of an individual and the actions of a group or collective. The final chapter, while arguing that collective responsibility is possible, also preserves central intuitions of the individualist.
