Title: Stephanie Collins
Blameworthiness and Obligation in Non-Agent GroupsWhat's the moral status  
of groups that are not agents -- groups like 'carbon emitters', 'the  
international community', or 'upholders of patriarchy'? This paper  
will argue that groups that are not agents cannot  
have obligations, but that they can be blameworthy. This unlikely  
pair of conclusions arises because of the different functions that  
obligations and blameworthiness play in our moral and political practices.  
Obligations function as inputs into the practical deliberation of the  
entity that bears the obligation. Groups that are not agents cannot reason,  
so they cannot have obligations. By contrast, blameworthiness functions as  
a reflection of the esteem or disesteem with which others (should) hold the  
blameworthy entity. Non-group agent groups are -- sometimes -- appropriate  
objects of esteem or disesteem. I give conditions under which  
non-agent groups are irreducibly blameworthy.
