Abstract

The discussion of whether psychopaths are morally responsible for their behaviour has long taken place in philosophy, and in recent years this has moved into scientific and psychiatric investigation. This resource discusses this subject from both the philosophical and scientific disciplines, as well as a legal perspective.
