journal teorema is pleased to announce an essay competition for
young scholars. The winner will receive 1500.00€, and the
essay will be published and acknowledged as winner in the journal.
Topic: The Social
Dimensions of Moral Responsibilityl
Work on moral responsibility
has largely adopted an individualistic approach, neglecting its
social dimensions. However, moral responsibility is based on agential
capacities and the latter depend on the social context in which
agents are embedded, including the institutions to which they
belong, the groups with which they interact and the interpersonal
relationships they take part in. In addi-tion, as a social practice,
moral responsibility is regulated by forces that are sensitive
to the influence exerted by differences in the distribution of
power, as well as by contexts of oppression and other forms of
structural injustice. There-fore, relations of responsibility
cannot simply be assumed to be reciprocal.
