Endorsements for Five Ways Patricia can Kill her Husband: A Theory of Intentionality and Blame:



“Five Ways Patricia Can Kill Her Husband is one of those special books that brings new insight to bear on a familiar subject. Leo Zaibert makes an important contribution to our understanding of the relationship of intention and blame, and articulates a powerful and convincing theory of culpability. I came away from this book impressed by the range and the depth of learning Zaibert displays, and braced by my encounter with the work of a first-rate philosopher.”

“In this powerful and dazzling work, Leo Zaibert uses the tools of contemporary philosophy of mind to shed new light on the age-old problem of how intentions affect culpability. He shows us not only how the mental states of wrongdoers are tied to the responsibility they bear for their actions, but also how, on this basis, we can construct a theory of objective blameworthiness that can serve as a model for the moral science of the future.”
