dc.description.abstract I argue that responsibility and determinism are not antithetical but mutually supportive ideas; that factors affecting responsibility, such as drugs and mental and physiological conditions, may be the occasion for increased or decreased penalties; and that the decision in such cases is not scientific but moral. I conclude, contra some modern authorities, that there is no opposition between science and law. en_US
