Walter Sinnott-Armstrong (Dartmouth) 'Degrees of Freedom and Responsibility' to be held in the Lecture Room, 10 Merton Street, Oxford - Seminars in Moral Philosophy webpage 

Abstract

Lawyers and philosophers usually ask simply whether or not agents are free or responsible. This paper rejects that traditional question because freedom and responsibility vary in degree along several distinct dimensions. This paper uses contrast classes to analyze these dimensions and then discusses some philosophical and legal implications.
