Show Summary Details


This chapter offers a ‘normative reconstruction’ of the concept of cheating. It seeks to develop a framework for thinking critically about a paradigmatic concept of cheating; and, if not to reach consensus on every point, then at least to identify those aspects of cheating about which there is likely to be agreement (or disagreement). It shows that there is, in fact, a widely recognized concept of cheating that it is distinguishable — both analytically and expressively — from other forms of moral wrongfulness.

Keywords: normative construction; white-collar crime; cheating; moral wrongfulness
