Requiring some assistance for a uni essay...

I understand somewhat that according to Hobbes children and adults can't be moral agents.

Does this mean only individuals who are moral agents can be held responsible for their actions?

Who can and can't be a moral agent?

Does anyone know any good books with more detail on moral agents as I'm struggling to find books that go into more depth on moral agents and whether individuals can be held responsible for their actions according to Hobbes, preferably Google books??

Corporations, collectives of any kind, even families or gangs can be moral agents. This from the perspective of the notion that in a collective, everyone has the same interests and values and even though one individual can commit an action the collective can be held responsible.
Agency and Autonomy in Kant's Moral Theory is on Google Books.

You need to read Leviathan.

This might shed some light:
