The Morality of Blackmail

Authors

  • JAMES R. SHAW


  • The impetus for this article came partly from reflecting on the insightful and challenging work on coercion and blackmail in A. Burra, “Coercion, Deception, Consent: Essays in Moral Explanation,” PhD diss., Princeton University, 2011. I also owe a debt to very helpful comments from Japa Pallikkathayil, Karl Schafer, Kritika Yegnashankaran, an audience at Bard College, and two anonymous reviewers.
