The Ethics of Capital Punishment

A Philosophical Investigation of Evil and its Consequences

Matthew Kramer

  • Presents accessible critiques of the standard arguments advanced for the death penalty, making valuable introductory reading for students studying the topic
  • Develops a novel justification for capital punishment that will become an essential reference point for future arguments over the practice
  • Anchors the morality of capital punishment in a philosophical theory of evil and its consequences that will be of relevance and interest to normative ethicists working beyond criminal law theory
