The purpose of this chapter is to establish the conceptual framework for, and articulate some of the pivotal assumptions of, this book. It attempts to set the stage for the analyses and arguments that follow, pointing the reader in the basic direction in which the philosophical discussion will ensue.

Moral responsibility theory has focused significantly and directly on the nature of a moral agent's acting intentionally and voluntarily and the extent to which that would make one a morally responsible agent.
