AbstractKnobe reports that subjects’ judgments of whether an agent did something intentionally vary depending on whether the outcome in question was seen by them as good or as bad. He concludes that subjects’ moral views affect their judgments about intentional action. This conclusion appears to follow only if different meanings of “intention” are overlooked.
