Book Description

August 1992 0813314836 978-0813314839
This book examines the philosophy of law by asking what exactly constitutes criminal liability at the point when the crime is being committed. The book then goes on to analyze those powers and procedures which the state should be permitted to utilize in order to establish such liability. This volume includes a selection of papers representing recent philosophical work on criminal liability and procedure. The essays highlight both the philosophical questions and what actually happens on the street and in the courtroom. The contributors include Anthony Kenny, Gerald Dworkin and Katharina Dalton.
