Crime, Guilt, and Punishment

Crime, Guilt, and Punishment

A Philosophical Introduction

Book - 1987
Rate this:
Considering philosophical theories of punishment in light of both abstract arguments and factual evidence about the effects of punishing offenders, this book links the moral justification of punishment by the state to more general issues concerning the nature of moral disagreements and our obligations to obey the law. Ten applies his discussion to problems in the punishment of a variety of offenders--the dangerously mentally ill, Nazi war criminals, "negligent" drivers, rapists, and others--and considers several related questions about crime and punishment.
