(p.177) Conclusion
Moral Responsibility in Collective Contexts

Tracy Isaacs

Oxford University Press

The conclusion emphasizes the overall philosophical goal of the book: to develop and defend a two level view of moral responsibility with an eye to accounting for moral responsibility in collective contexts. According to this view, moral responsibility occurs at the collective level and the individual level. The conclusion summarizes the significant conclusions of each chapter and ends with a call to action. The author expresses the hope that readers will be encouraged by her account to see themselves more clearly in relation to the collectives of which they are parts.
