Synopsis

This first volume in the four-volume series The Moral Limits of the Criminal Law focuses on the "harm principle" the commonsense view that prevention of harm to persons other than the perpetrator is a legitimate purpose of criminal legislation. Feinberg presents a detailed analysis of the concept and definition of harm and applies it to a host of practical and theoretical issues showing how the harm principle must be interpreted if it is to be a plausible guide to the lawmaker.
