Philosophy of Crime and Punishment

Philosophy of Crime and Punishment provides students with an opportunity for sustained moral and philosophical reflection on both contemporary practices of punishment and various theoretical assumptions regarding responsibility and causation implicit in modern criminal law. It also serves to introduce students to abstract philosophical questions concerning the nature of morally right action, responsibility, and causation through concrete examples that are both accessible and of obvious practical importance. This fellowship will support the following improvements to the course: 1) the introduction of new topics and readings to the syllabus; 2) an increase in my knowledge of U.S. Criminal Law, International Criminal Law, and Comparative Criminal Law; 3) the creation of new instructional methods and assignments; and 4) the development of new multimedia elements for use in this and other philosophy courses.
