Professor Tollefsen Publishes New Book

Professor Deborah Tollefsen's new book Groups as Agents has been published with Polity. Professor Tollefsen offers a survey of contemporary philosophers' answers to questions about group minds, collective intentionality, and moral and legal responsibilities of groups. She argues that certain groups should be treated as agents and deserve to be held morally accountable.
