(iii)Difference between purposely and knowingly is a positive desire (“maliciousness/ viciousness” vs. “callousness”)c.Recklessly. A person acts recklessly with respect to a material element of an offense when he consciously disregards a substantial and unjustifiable riskthat the material element exists or will result from his conduct. The risk must be of such a nature and degree that, considering the nature and purpose of the actor's conduct and the circumstances known to him, its disregard involves a gross deviation from the standard of conduct that a law-abiding personwould observe in the actor's situation.(i)Difference between knowingly and recklessly is the degree of risk of which the actor is aware (“highly probable” vs. “substantial”); reckless = careless(ii)“Malice” typically corresponds with recklessnessd.Negligently. A person acts negligently with respect to a material element of an offense when he should be aware of a substantial and unjustifiable riskthat the material element exists or will result from his conduct. The risk must be of such a nature and degree that the actor's failure to perceive it, considering the nature and purpose of his conduct and the circumstances known to him, involves a gross deviation from the standard of care that a reasonable personwould observe in the actor's situation.(i)Critical differencebetween reckless and negligent is awareness of risk- defendant acting negligently is unaware of consequences and so is arguable neither blameworthy or deterable- punished only in exceptional cases(ii)Difference between negligence and strict liability- whether the defendant’s awareness of the risk is a failure to meet the objective standard of the reasonable person(iii)Negligence is controversial- based on normative belief of what others should expect; you could be a criminal for inadvertent conduct

4.If the culpability required is not specified for every element but a mens rea term is mentioned, that mens rea term can be applied to all material elements of the offense, unless a contrary purpose plainly appears.
