Abstract:The documentary film Mr. Death raises questions about a man's agency in denying the Holocaust. Although Korsgaard's defense of ethics provides an invaluable corrective on any reduction of forms of life to unrelenting patterns of social power, her position fails to address power at all. On the other hand, Butler's characterization of freedom in terms of power also fails to capture the range of meanings of decision. This dilemma is resolved by taking action itself as the fundamental unit of study.
