  •  See also Williams (1981). The term “resultant luck” is originally from Zimmerman (1987). Another common label is “consequential luck.” The other kinds of moral luck identified by Nagel are: luck about our constitution or dispositions, luck about the causes of our acts, and luck about the circumstances in which we act.
