A Final Thought on Moral Wrongfulness

Show Summary Details


The focus in Part II has been on the various distinct ways in which people commit wrongful acts. The attempt has been to think about each kind of wrong in isolation — separated both from harms and one another. But it is important to recognize that such concepts are not wholly separable, and that there is in fact a potential for overlap among them. The chapter focuses on the nature of such overlap.
