Sher’s book is an exploration of the epistemic dimensions of moral psychology and responsibility, prior to considerations of free will and control. His goal is to show that “because philosophers have not taken the knowledge requirement [of moral responsibility] seriously, a certain familiar way of understanding it has not received the scrutiny it deserves.” Sher then sets out to give the knowledge requirement of moral responsibility an extended and lucid treatment, and to offer his own composite version.
