Kriterion - Journal of Philosophy 21 (1):46-63 (2007)

In this paper, I examine P. F. Strawson's \Freedom and Resentment" [6] in an eort to clarify the essential features of attitudes that Strawson believes may be understood as reactive. I propose a denition of the reactive attitudes that outlines the various conditions that must be met in order to give rise to a given reactive attitude. I then expand upon Strawson's work by introducing two additional categories of reactive attitudes: self-re exive reactive attitudes and second-personal reflexive reactive attitudes. In addition to explaining the new categories of reactive attitudes that I seek to introduce, I also set forth reasons that lead me to accept such attitudes as reactive. Finally, I outline why I believe the self-reflexive reactive attitudes provide the foundation upon which all the other reactive attitudes rest
