PHL 449 Issues in the Philosophy of Punishment

The criminal justice system operates on the basis of two sets of ethical objectives: the maintenance of public order and safety on the one hand, and the requirement that the guilty and only the guilty should be punished on the other. This course examines the way in which these aims can conflict both practically and philosophically, and points to some of the ethical dilemmas that can arise for criminal justice practitioners as a result.
