Author Biography

Larry May is a professor of Philosophy at Washington University in St. Louis, MO. His long-term research concerns the theory of moral and legal responsibility, especially the concepts of collective responsibility, guilt and shame. He has authored several books on this general theme as well as books on professional ethics, masculinity and medical ethics. He is currently working on a book concerning the concept of a crime against humanity and a war crime, and about who could justifiably be held accountable and prosecuted for such crimes. He is also examining genocide and other aspects of international criminal law.
