The Philosophy Society

The Philosophy Society

On Wednesday evening, October 28th, the Philosophy Society followed up its group discussion of the theme of 'Justice' with a very entertaining talk by Dr Hawkins.

This put forward some views on the merits of punishment and the criminal justice system, which much of the audience had not considered before: looking at each argument for the existence of punishment (to deter, to rehabilitate and to incapacitate) and highlighting their philosophical and practical problems, in an eye-opening, if slightly controversial, talk.
