In defence of Punishment and the unified theory of punishment : a reply.

Brooks, Thom (2016) 'In defence of Punishment and the unified theory of punishment : a reply.', Criminal law and philosophy., 10 (3). pp. 629-638.


My book, Punishment, has three aims: to provide the most comprehensive and updated examination of the philosophy of punishment available, to advance a new theory—the unified theory of punishment—as a compelling alternative to available theories and to consider the relation of theory to practice. In his recent review article, Mark Tunick raises several concerns with my analysis. I address each of these concerns and argue they rest largely on misinterpretations which I restate and clarify here.

Item Type:Article
Keywords:Expressivism, Hegel, Legal moralism, Retribution, Unified theory of punishment.
