Crossing the Line: New Intuitions Behind Frankfurt-Type Cases

Axiomathes. 2017. Vol. 27. No. 4. P. 393-402.

Frankfurt-type cases with covered manipulation received a great attention in the
debates about freedom of will and moral responsibility. They pretend to give the
refutation of the Principle of Alternative Possibilities (PAP) and to show that we can
intuitively blame or praise an agent who was not able to do otherwise. In this paper, I
will try to make explicit some basic intuitions underlying the agent's responsibility in
Frankfurt-type cases, which were surprisingly ignored in the contemporary debates.
The key intuition is that the responsibility of the agent in Frankfurt-type cases is always
grounded at the point of overcoming the uncertainty preceding action. This overcoming
is crucially important for agent's responsibility and immune to any manipulation of
counterfactual intervener.
