My inquiry revolves around the communicative aspect of moral agency. How does responding to others' activity ("criticism" in a broad sense) figure within moral competence? I resist framing critical engagement as either essentially claim-like (expressive, legitimacy-oriented) or as "just more conduct" (regulative, outcome-oriented). In developing my third view, I tackle some entrenched philosophical assumptions about agency, meaning, and social responsibility.
