Philosophical Perspectives on Punishment

Author: Gertrude Ezorsky
Publisher: SUNY Press
ISBN: 0873952138
Release Date: 1973
Genre: Philosophy

“Punishment,” writes J. E. McTaggart, “ is pain and to inflict pain on any person obviously [requires] justification.” But if the need to justify punishment is obvious, the manner of doing so is not. Philosophers have developed an array of diverse, often conflicting arguments to justify punitive institutions. Gertrude Ezorsky introduces this source book of significant historical and contemporary philosophical writings on problems of punishment with her own article, “The Ethics of Punishment.” She brings together systematically the important papers and relevant studies from psychology, law, and literature, and organizes them under five subtopics: concepts of punishment, the justification of punishment, strict liability, the death penalty, and alternatives to punishment. Under these general headings forty-two papers are presented to give philosophical perspectives on punishment. Included are many (e.g., John Stuart Mill’s defense of capital punishment) not generally available. This book brings together in a single volume the views of such diverse writers as Plato, St. Thomas Aquinas, Samuel Butler, Karl Marx, and Lady Barbara Wooten. Others are J. Andenaes, K. G. Armstrong, John Austin, Kurt Baier, Jeremy Bentham, F. H. Bradley, Richard Brandt, Clarence Darrow, A. C. Ewing, Joel Feinberg, “The Hon. Mr. Gilpin,” H. L. A. Hart, G. W. F. Hegel, Thomas Hobbs, Immanuel Kant, J. D. Mabbott, H. J. McCloskey, J. E. McTaggart, R. Martinson, G. E. Moore, Herbert Morris, Anthony Quinton, D. Daiches Raphael, H. Rashdall, John Rawls, W. D. Ross, Royal Commission on Capital Punishment Report 1949–53, George Bernard Shaw, T. L. S. Sprigge, and R. Wasserstrom.

The series, St Andrews Studies in Philosophy and Public Life originates in the Centre for Ethics, Philosophy and Public Affairs, University of St Andrews and is under the general editorship of John Haldane.

In this volume, the author sets aside the usual division between theories of punishment that do or do not focus on retribution. In its place he proposes and explores the distinction between internalist and externalist theories. The final chapter discusses the deterrent value of punishment.

Deus beatitudo hominis

Author: Stefan Gradl
Publisher: Peeters Publishers
ISBN: 9042914300
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Religion

Alle Menschen streben nach Gluck. Kaum jemand - auch kein Theologe - wird diesem Satz ernsthaft widersprechen wollen. Das Wort 'Gluck' scheint alle Streben und Suchen, alle Sehnsuchte und Wunsche des Menschen zusammenzufassen. Dennoch ist 'Gluck' ein nahezu unerforschtes und vergessenes Thema protestantischer Theologie. Das Ziel der vorliegenden Studie ist est, die Forchungslucke zu schliessen und Chancen sowie Grenzen auszuloten, 'Gluck' fur die evangelische Theologie der Gegenwart zu rezipieren. Zu diesem Zweck soll jener Theologe befragt werden, in dessen Denken das Gluck des Menschen eine entscheidende Rolle spielte: Thomas von Aquin (1224/5-1274). Nach einer einfuhrenden Untersuchung der Moglichkeiten und Schwierigkeiten protestantischer Thomas-Rezeption wird die Stellung der beatitudo-Lehre im Gesamtzusammenhang der Summa Theologiae analysiert. Eine eingehende Interpretation des Gluckstraktats (STh I-II 1-5) bildet das Herzstuck der vorliegenden Arbeit. Als Ergebnis werden im letzten Abschnitt Kriterien formuliert, die dabei helfen sollen, in der gegenwartigen evangelischen Theologie sinnvoll und verantwortet vom Gluck des Menschen zu sprechen.
