Retributivism

Essays on Theory and Policy

Edited by Mark D. White

  • Describes the relevance of retributivism to current debates over capital punishment, entrapment, excessive sentencing, and the necessity defense
  • Explains how the principled concerns of retributivist justice can be accommodated and compromised in a real-world system of criminal justice by adopting an explicitly political conception of the practice
  • Proposes a rethinking of the philosophical foundations of retributivism, even from seminal retributivist thinkers such as Immanuel Kant and G.W.F. Hegel
