Rehabilitating Retributivism, Mitchell N. Berman Jan 2012

Rehabilitating Retributivism, Mitchell N. Berman

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

This review essay of Victor Tadros’s new book, ‘‘The Ends of Harm: The Moral Foundations of Criminal Law,’’ responds to Tadros’s energetic and sophisticated attacks on retributivist justifications for criminal punishment. I argue, in a nutshell, that those attacks fail. In defending retributivism, however, I also sketch original views on two questions that retributivism must address but that many or most retributivists have skated past. First, what do wrongdoers deserve – to suffer? to be punished? something else? Second, what does it mean for them to deserve it? That is, what is the normative force or significance of valid ...

Intersektionella Analyser. Att Begreppsliggöra Ojämlikheter I Och Genom Rätten, Linnéa Wegerstad, Niklas Selberg Dec 2011

Intersektionella Analyser. Att Begreppsliggöra Ojämlikheter I Och Genom Rätten, Linnéa Wegerstad, Niklas Selberg

Niklas Selberg

Inledning till tema intersektionalitet

I inbjudan till detta temanummer skrev den svenska redaktionen att nordisk rättsvetenskaplig forskning under de senaste decennierna allt mer har uppmärksammat olika maktrelationer i förhållande till rätten, men att interaktioner mellan olika maktrelationer inte har analyserats i någon större utsträckning. Däremot har genusvetenskaplig forskning behandlat interaktioner mellan kön, klass, etnicitet, sexualitet, ålder eller funktionshinder inom vad som har kommit att kallas intersektionalitet. I det följande introducerar vi föreliggande nummers intersektionella analyser, och diskuterar det sammanhang de kan placeras i. 1980 hade Retfærd sitt första temanummer om kvinnorätt som fem år senare följdes upp av tema ’kvinderetfærd ...

Book Review: The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration In The Age Of Colorblindness, Nick J. Sciullo Dec 2011

Book Review: The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration In The Age Of Colorblindness, Nick J. Sciullo

Nick J. Sciullo

Many in the legal academy have heard of Michelle Alexander’s new book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in an Age of Colorblindness. It has been making waves. One need only attend any number of legal conferences in the past year or so, or read through the footnotes in recent law review articles. Furthermore, this book has been reviewed in journals from a number of academic fields, suggesting Alexander has provided a text with profound insights across the university and public spheres. While I will briefly talk about the book as a book, I will spend the majority of ...


Between “Metaphysics Of The Stone Age” And The “Brave New World”: H.L.A. Hart On The Law’S Assumptions About Human Nature, Péter Cserne Dec 2011

Between “Metaphysics Of The Stone Age” And The “Brave New World”: H.L.A. Hart On The Law’S Assumptions About Human Nature, Péter Cserne

Péter Cserne

This paper analyses H.L.A. Hart’s views on the epistemic character of the law’s assumptions about human behaviour, as articulated in Causation in the Law and Punishment and Responsibility. Hart suggests that the assumptions behind legal doctrines typically combine common sense factual beliefs, moral intuitions, and philosophical theories of earlier ages with sound moral principles, and empirical knowledge. An important task of legal theory is to provide a ‘rational and critical foundation’ for these doctrines. This does not only imply conceptual clarification in light of an epistemic ideal of objectivity but also involves legal theorists in ‘enlightenment ...
