요약
"Psychopaths have emotional impairments that can be expressed in persistent criminal behavior. UK and US law has traditionally excused disordered individuals for their crimes citing these emotional impairments as a cause for their criminal behaviour. The discussion of whether psychopaths are morally responsible for their behaviour has long taken place in the realm of philosophy. However, in recent years, this has moved into scientific and psychiatric investigation, fundamentally so with the development of Robert Hare's diagnostic tool, the Psychopathy Checklist. Responsibility and Psychopathy explores the moral responsibility of psychopaths. It engages with problems at the interface of law, psychiatry, and philosophy, and is divided into three parts providing relevant interdisciplinary background information to address this main problem. The first part discusses the public policy and legal responses to psychopathy. It offers an introduction to the central practical issue of how public policy should respond to psychopathy, giving insights for those arguing about the responsibility of psychopaths. The second part introduces recent scientific advancements in the classification, description, and explanation of psychopathy. In particular, Robert Hare illustrates and defends his Psychopathy Checklist (PCL). Surveys of the most recent brain imaging studies on psychopaths and the prospects for treatment are also included. The third part of the volume includes chapters covering the most significant dimensions of philosophical debate on the moral and criminal responsibility of psychopaths. In relation to this issue, philosophers have considered whether psychopathic offenders possess moral understanding and/or are capable of controlling their criminal behaviour. This part illustrates how answering these questions involves investigating highly debated and central philosophical problems. These difficulties concern the nature of moral understanding, the significance of emotive and cognitive faculties in moral understanding and motivation, and the most appropriate account of moral and criminal responsibility that can justify a response to the psychopathic offenders. Exploring one of the most contentious topics of our time, this book is fascinating reading for psychiatrists, philosophers, criminologists, and lawyers"--

Author Introduction

존 맥밀런(지은이)

스탠퍼드 경영대학원 경제학 교수이자 스탠퍼드 경제정책연구소 연구원. 뉴질랜드 캔터베리 대학교를 졸업하고 오스트레일리아 뉴사우스웨일스 대학교에서 경제학 박사학위를 받았다. 《저널 오브 이코노믹 리터러처》, 《컨템포러리 이코노믹 팔러시》, 《저널 오브 더 재패니즈 앤 인터내셔널 이코노미스》 편집위원, 캐나다 웨스턴온타리오 대학교와 캘리포니아 대학교 교수를 역임했으며, 캐나다 경제연합(CEA)에서 수여하는 “해리존슨 상”을 받았다. “이코노메트릭 소사이어티”와 영국 “윌리엄데이비드슨 경제연구소” 회원이며, 컨설팅 회사 “마켓디자인”의 공동창립자로서 정부와 기업을 상대로 주로 규제 철폐와 시장 구조에 대해 조언을 해주고 있다. 특히 미국의 연방통신위원회(FCC)를 도와, 《뉴욕 타임스》가 “역사상 최고의 경매”라고 칭한 통신사업자 심사 제도를 마련하는 데 큰 역할을 하였다. 맥밀런 교수는 국영기업의 인센티브 활용 문제와 개발도상국의 시장 개혁을 연구했다. 최근에는 베트남과 동유럽의 기업들이 당면한 문제를 통해 금융 시장과 기업의 관계를, 또 페루의 사례를 통해 정부의 부패와 기업의 관계를 연구해 왔고, 특히 일본의 사업 현장과 중국의 국영기업 연구에 초점을 두었다. 시장 설계, 시장기구 비교연구 등에 관한 논문이 다수 있으며, 저서로는 게임 이론을 연구한 『게임, 전략, 매니저』(1992)를 포함하여 다섯 권을 지었다. 맥밀런 교수는 현실적이면서 실용적인 제안을 내놓는 경제학자이지만 아쉽게도 2007년 3월 암으로 눈을 감았다.
