In recent years Tony Honoré has been working on problems of responsibility that arise out of his work with H.L.A. Hart on causation. In particular, he has developed the notion that people can, even when not at fault or legally liable, be responsible for unintended aspects and outcomes of their conduct. The notion of ‘outcome responsibility’ has attracted the interest of philosophers and lawyers and this collection of seven of his essays on the subject was published in 1999.

The essays aroused interest and form the main theme of a collection of eight papers by lawyers and philosophers entitled Relating to Responsibility. Essays in Honour of Tony Honoré on his Eightieth Birthday edited by Peter Cane and John Gardner. Please see publishing details below.

This volume was selected by Reinhard Zimmermann in Neue Juristischer Wochenschrift as one of the foreign law books of the year 2001.
