The Significance of Intentions
This chapter argues that the distinction between intention and foresight is significant in the attribution of criminal responsibility. After examining the nature of intentions, it is suggested that intentions make a difference to the gravity of wrongdoing. That conclusion is defended by exploring less serious offence contexts where the significance of intentions is illuminated more brightly.
