Editorial Reviews

Review


"Joel Feinberg is a political and social philosopher of major importance....Virtually everyone who has written about legal and moral responsibility during the past fifteen years owes him a significant debt." --Harvard Law Review


"Illuminates and advances the discussion of all the issues it touches. It is certainly a major contribution that will require consideration for years to come." --Law and Philosophy


"Feinberg's treatment of these issues is probably as thorough, clear, and sophisticated as any that exist. The book is superbly and engagingly written and filled with good sense. It is illuminating not only of problems of philosophical analysis and normative theory, but also of more concrete policy issues....An extremely useful book. The four volumes together will doubtless comprise the most impressive treatment of their topic ever achieved." --Philosophy and Phenomenological Research


"An extremely useful book. Many important topics are discussed carefully, sensibly, and with erudition. The four volumes together will doubtless comprise the most impressive treatment of the topic ever achieved."--Philosophy and Phenomenological Research

By Joshua S Kleinfeld on October 5, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one of the most important efforts to analyze Miil's harm principle in order to articulate a politically liberal conception of criminal law. It's great flaw is that, in order to stretch the harm principle far enough to include everything Feinberg thinks ought to be criminalized and exclude everything he thinks ought not to be criminalized, Feinberg fashions a principle which has little connection with what Mill said and what others who speak of the harm principle mean. What Feinberg really shows, without admitting it or even seeing it, is that Mill's harm principle is unworkable. Nonetheless, this book is a classic.

This is a really great book, a marvelous analysis fot people who want to harm others without harming themselves. Especially insightful is the chapter about harming the dead.
