Moore on Complicity and Causality

Professor Gardner notes that, though he and Professor Moore agree “that causal wrongs exist,” they “part company [when they] turn to the question of which moral and legal wrongs are causal wrongs.” Gardner argues for a view of accomplice liability that incorporates “causal pluralism,” concluding that “the types of causal contributions made by accomplices to and through the acts of their principals vary” in ways that Moore’s account fails to provide for.
