In 2010, BP caused the biggest oil spill in human history, when the oil rig Deepwater Horizon exploded. Afterwards, it was impossible to determine exactly what had gone wrong and who had caused the disaster. In his research, Corstin Dieterich sets out an argument for collective moral responsibility. This means it is possible that a collective (such as BP) is responsible for its collective actions and that this responsibility cannot be reduced to the moral responsibility of the individuals involved.
