Meetup Description: Paul H. Robinson: Shared Intuitions of Justice
Recent social science research suggests that many, if not most judgments about criminal liability and punishment for serious wrongdoing are intuitional rather than reasoned. Further, such intuitions of justice are nuanced and widely shared, even though they concern matters that seem quite complex and subjective.
While people may debate the source of these intuitions, it seems clear that their source must be one that is insulated from the influence of much of human experience; if not, one would see differences in intuitions reflecting the vast differences in human existence across demographics and societies. After summarizing what social science has to say about our shared intuitions of justice, Robinson explores the serious implications of this reality for criminal law and criminal policy.?
Paul H. Robinson is a Colin S. Diver professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He is author of ?Criminal Law: Case Studies and Controversies? and ?Law without Justice: Why Criminal Law Doesn?t Give People What They Deserve,? as well as many other essays and research.
