Marcelo Ferrante is Professor of Law at the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella. His recent publications include “Causation in Criminal Responsibility,” 11 New Criminal Law Review 470 (2008), and “Recasting the Problem of Resultant Luck,” 15 Legal Theory 267 (2009).

In writing this chapter I have benefited from the assistance of Guillermo Orce, who wrote first draft s for sections II.A and II.B.3.iii and edited the notes and the selected bibliography. Many thanks to him. I would also like to thank Gustavo Bruzzone, Luis María Bunge Campos, Fernando Córdoba, Leonardo Filippini, Roberto Gargarella, Hernán Gullco, and Pablo Parenti for helpful comments during the preparation of this chapter. The selection of judicial cases I include in this chapter has been influenced by Gullco’s selection in Hernán V. Gullco, Principios de la parte general del derecho penal: Jurisprudencia comentada (Buenos Aires: Editores del Puerto, 2006).
