Behavior, Free Will, and the Law


The latest issue of Behavioral Sciences and the Law has an entire issue devoted to the concept of free will, behavior and the implications of recent psychological research on the law. Of particular note is an article by University of Pennsylvania law professor Stephen Morse, The Non-Problem of Free Will in Forensic Psychiatry and Psychology and National Institute of Health psychopathy researcher R. J. R. Blair, Aggression, Psychopathy and Free Will From a Cognitive Neuroscience Perspective. The articles require a subscription, but are worth reading.


Another article by Morse on a similar subject is Inevitable Mens Rea, 27 Harv. J. L. & Pub. Pol'y 51 (2003).

Indeed, that is a good one too.
