Reasonableness as a Character Trait

Ethics Colloquium by Marcia Baron

This paper is part of a larger project of attempting to work out how reasonableness should be understood for some purposes in the criminal law where a reasonable person standard, or a requirement on the part of persons of reasonableness, plays a significant role.  Here I step back from the legal issues to reflect on how reasonableness, as a quality of (some) persons, is best understood.
