Provocation and Responsibility

Jeremy Horder

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses developments in the 17th century, when the foundations of the modern doctrine of provocation were laid. It is during this time that the threshold conditions for the availability of mitigation provided by the doctrine were developed. The first section briefly describes the categories of sufficient provocation. The second section considers provoked retaliation and the concept of honour in early modern England. The third section discusses the development of the four categories of provocation. The fourth section explores the link between honour and virtue in the case of a just retaliation.

Keywords:   provoked retaliation, just retaliation, 17th century, honour, virtue
