Title: Hannah Tierney (Sydney)
Title: Guilty Confessions

Abstract: What P.F. Strawson (1962) labelled the reactive  
attitudes—gratitude, resentment, forgiveness, love, and hurt feelings—have  
each generated rich areas of research. But the reactive attitude that gets  
the most attention has historically been resentment, especially as it  
relates to blame and moral responsibility. Recently, however, discussions  
of blame and moral responsibility have featured another reactive attitude:  
guilt. These views are interesting and promising because they are able to  
capture a particular function of blame better than any extant view. Namely,  
if the point of blame is to allocate suffering to wrongdoers, then  
guilt-centric accounts of blameworthiness are bound to be more successful  
than their competitors. In this talk, I will reflect on the conversations  
and practices that surround guilty confessions and argue that they  
illuminate an important function of blame that has been overlooked in the  
recent work on guilt as it relates to blameworthiness. While blame can  
allocate deserved suffering to wrongdoers, it can also communicate that an  
individual who has been wronged deserves respect. This is an important  
function of blame that cannot be accounted for by these guilt-based views  
of blameworthiness.
