Ori J. Herstein (King's College London - School of Law) has posted Responsibility in Negligence: Discussion of 'From Normativity to Responsibility' (Forthcoming in Jerusalem Review of Legal Studies (2014, OUP)) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
This essay explains, expands, develops, and reflects on the Razian theory of responsibility and identity, focusing primarily on responsibility for negligent actions. I begin with setting the stage for understanding the importance of Joseph Raz’s theory and what motivates it. Next, the essay lays out the theory itself, and offers some elaboration on some of the less developed features of the theory. The essay closes with two critical reflections.
