Among all the works of Peter Sroson, only two articles concerns the ques-tions of moral philosophy. The first article “Freedom and Resentment” contains Strawson’s answer to the deterministic argument against moral responsibility. This paper intends to demonstrate that Strawson’s counterargument becomes valid, only if the second article “Social Morality and Individual Ideal” is considered.
