Congratulations to Dr. Matthew Altman for his recent publication: A Theory of Legal Punishment: Deterrence, Retribution, and the Aims of the State
This book argues for a mixed view of punishment that balances consequentialism and retributivism. A central question in the philosophy of law is why the state’s punishment of its own citizens is justified. Traditionally, two theories of punishment have dominated the field: consequentialism and retributivism. This book draws on cutting-edge criminological research to show how punishment theory can help us to address some of our most pressing social issues, including the death penalty, drug laws, and mass incarceration. It will be of interest to legal philosophers, social scientists, especially criminologists, sociologists, economists, and political scientists.
