Philosophy Seminar: Don’t Suffer in Silence: A Self-Help Guide to Self-Blame

Hannah Tierney | Department of Philosophy

Don’t Suffer in Silence: A Self-Help Guide to Self-Blame

There are better and worse ways to blame others. Likewise, there are better and worse ways to blame yourself. And though there is an ever-expanding literature on the norms that govern our blaming practices, relatively little attention has been paid to the norms that govern expressions of self-blame. In this talk, I’ll argue that when we blame ourselves, we ought not do so privately. Rather, we should, ceteris paribus, express our self-blame to those we’ve wronged. I then explore how this norm can contribute to our understanding of the ethics of blame as well as the nature of blameworthiness itself.
