Action and Value in Criminal Law

Stephen Shute, John Gardner, and Jeremy Horder


Criminal law has been described as a species of political and moral philosophy; whether that can be said to be true is not at all certain, but criminal law can be the subject of philosophical study. The aim of this book is to explore some of the philosophical foundations of criminal law. English and North American contributors have produced chapters for this volume.

Keywords: criminal law, political philosophy, moral philosophy, philosophical study
