Abstract: Externalism is the view that facts about one’s history or past in the external world that bear on the acquisition of one’s responsibility-grounding psychological elements are pertinent to whether one’s actions are free and, hence, pertinent to whether one can be morally responsible for them. Internalism is the thesis that the conditions of moral responsibility can be specified independently of facts about how the person acquired her responsibility-grounding psychological elements. In this paper we defend a position that navigates between externalism and internalism: moral responsibility does not require that one have a past but it does require that one not have certain kinds of past.
