Коллективное сознание и моральная ответственность

In the paper, I discuss the question of moral responsibility and dependence of the answer on the existence of collective mind. I argue that collective mind is not a necessary condition for collective moral responsibility. For thesis justification, I take responsibility conditions proposed by Christian List and Philip Pettit. Responsibility conditions are normative significance, judgmental capacity and relevant control. It is shown that not only individuals, but groups as well may satisfy such conditions. The presence of collective mind does not make any difference in satisfying all three conditions together or each one separately. Therefore, the possibility of collective responsibility for groups does not depend on the presence of collective mind.
