Philosophical criminology asks big questions about how we get along with one another and what happens when we do not, and this installment in Policy’s New Horizons in Criminology series is the first book to foreground this emerging field. Structured around six core philosophical ideas concerning our relationships with others—values, morality, aesthetics, order, rules, and respect—Philosophical Criminology builds upon Andrew Millie’s past work with value judgments, aesthetics, and respect to consider the shifting boundaries of criminology. Using international examples, Millie provides a theoretical underpinning and philosophical platform for engaging with important, topical issues that range from crime as a legally defined concept to the criminology of social and environmental harm.
Review Quotes
Bruce Arrigo, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
“This book is the new primer for philosophical criminology. It borrows both knowledge and wisdom from the analytic and continental traditions, and it explains why criminology has always been (and must always be) a decidedly philosophical endeavor, sui generis.”
David Polizzi, Indiana State University
Philosophical Criminology explores its topic from the most basic of premises: it is impossible to discuss criminology without philosophy.”
Loraine Gelsthorpe, University of Cambridge
“This is an adventurous and exciting book looking at some old concepts but with fresh thinking. Philosophical Criminology asks big questions about how we get on with one another and what happens when we do not, taking a route which crosses disciplinary boundaries. Well-informed, hugely accessible, and memorable.”
Ronnie Lippens, Keele University
“A real tour de force that lays the groundwork for what Millie calls an empathetic criminology, this little gem of a book deserves to be read very widely.”
Don Crewe, Leeds Beckett University
“Opens the philosophical toolbox to criminology helping us to comprehend what questions need asking and how best to answer them.”
