Обыденные суждения о причинности и вине за непреднамеренные негативные последствия действий: экспериментальный подход к оценке влияния

С. 217-231.
Девятко И. Ф., Гаврилов К. А.

The chapter raises the question of the specificity of causality and blame judgments in situations of unintended negative side effects of intentional actions. We focus on the naïve “theory of social action”, according to which there are limitations on the actor’s responsibility for intelligibly expected probable unintended damage of his actions. We propose that causality and blame judgments depend on (1) particular institutional domain of the action, (2) type of actor (individual, corporate or institutional actor), (3) type of inadvertent damage (property damage or health damage) and (4) “remoteness” of damage from its originator (immediate damage to an agent performing an action in a new situation created by the originator’s action either damage to a third party).
