What is blame? Under what conditions is blame appropriate? What is it for an action to be blameworthy as opposed to wrongful? Do a person’s intentions matter only to whether her conduct is blameworthy, or do they matter also to whether her conduct is wrongful? We will take up these and related questions, roughly in reverse order. Our goal will be to understand blame and blameworthiness both in their own terms and in relation to other important ways of evaluating the moral status of an action.
