Fellow PEA Brains: I have a quick question for those in the know. The terms "criminal responsibility" and "legal responsibility" are often used interchangeably in what little of the literature I know in legal theory dealing with the concepts. I'm wondering, though, if there are some theorists who think these terms pick out different concepts. And independently of whether or not some theorists actually do so, are there good reasons to do so? I have my suspicions about a possible reason to distinguish talk of legal from criminal responsibility, but I'd rather hear from experts on the topic. (And I'm thinking of distinctions where both legal and criminal responsibility refer to a type of responsibility for something, rather than merely referring to a particular sort of status, i.e., being a responsible agent).
