ABSTRACT
This article examines the moral notion of incitement. Incitement is perhaps most often taken as a legal term. Like many such concepts in the criminal law, incitement is not just a legal notion invented by lawyers. It is also a moral notion and was presumably taken over by the law from ordinary moral talk. In connection to this, four charges brought against Franklin by the Stanford administration were examined. Among the cases, three were sustained by the Faculty Advisory Board. The only charge unanimously sustained by the Board was the second of the four, which was that Professor Franklin, speaking at a rally, urged and incited students and others to disrupt University functions by shutting down the Computation Center. On the basis of this and two other charges of incitement which it also sustained, the Board recommended that Franklin be dismissed from his position. This recommendation was accepted by the President and Board. However, the problem here is that to show that Franklin was morally wrong in inciting the students one must show that he was morally responsible for getting them to hold a false belief that they ought to do as they did. Hence, this means that in order for incitement to occur, one must first show that the belief was false.
