Title: Cheshire Calhoun, Arizona

  Perhaps the most astonishing fact about intimidation is that, with one  
notable exception--Sandra Bartky's essays on intimidation--there is no  
philosophical analysis of what intimidation is or how it differs from  
coercion. The most commonly discussed instances of intimidation--witness  
intimidation, voter intimidation, gang intimidation, racial intimidation,  
political intimidation, and intimidation in the context of domestic  
violence--are all ones where explicit or implied threats of serious harm are  
in play and thus where the distinction between coercion and intimidation is  
especially blurred. While these instances of intimidation may be paradigm  
cases of morally and legally worrisome intimidation, they are not obviously  
paradigm instances of intimidation, since we also use 'intimidation' and  
'being intimidated' in reference to contexts where there are no explicit or  
implied threats, and indeed where there may be no intimidator.

There are thus two main questions before us. First, "What is intimidation?"  
An adequate answer should make clear how and to what extent intimidation  
differs from coercion. It should also provide an analysis that fits the  
full range of instances of intimidation, not simply a salient subset.  
Second, "In what does the badness or morally troubling nature of  
intimidation consist?"
