Justice and Punishment

The recent revival of retributive theory has been led by Michael Moore's claim that retributivism has moral worth, and by communicative and expressive theories of punishment that emphasize guilt and censure. It is argued that retributivism captures an important truth about punishment's backward‐looking nature, but that no retributive theory can adequately answer the question of by what right some people punish others.

Keywords:   censure, communicative punishment, expressive punishment, guilt, Michael Moore, morality, punishment, retributivism
