Editorial Reviews


"...the volume is a rousing success and is essential reading for anyone with a serious interest in criminal law theory or the justification of punishment." William A. Edmundson, Philosophy in Review

"If the quality of this offering is representative of what is to come, we have much to look forward to in subsequent volumes. This volume is recommended without hesitation to all philosophers of law, especially as the basis for a graduate the very least the tentative steps these disputing authors make toward one another's positions allow us to see better what is really at issue: and surely this feature alone marks this book as one deserving of careful consideration." Review of Metaphysics

Book Description

Five pre-eminent legal theorists tackle a range of fundamental questions on the nature of the philosophy of criminal law. Their essays explore the extent to which and the ways in which our systems of criminal law can be seen as rational and principled. The essays discuss some of the principles by which, it is often thought, a system of law should be structured, and they ask whether our own systems are genuinely principled or riven by basic contradictions, reflecting deeper political and social conflicts.
