Abstract/Description: In this dissertation, I draw from the fields of philosophy, psychology, and applied behavior analysis in order to present what I take to be a necessary condition for morally responsible agency, the Integrated Mental Status condition (IMS). I offer a view that privileges the mental status of the agent above other conditions when considering moral responsibility. I do this within a conceptual framework that takes moral responsibility to exist on a continuum and assessments of moral responsibility to be deeply contextual and localized to a time. Additionally, I make an argument for how and why finding and holding responsible can and should come apart in an analysis of moral responsibility.
