This edited book provides an in-depth examination of the implications of neuroscience for the criminal justice system. It draws together experts from across law, neuroscience, medicine, psychology, criminology and ethics, and offers an important contribution to current debates at the intersection of these fields. The volume examines how neuroscience might contribute to fairer and more effective criminal justice systems, and how neuroscientific insights and information can be integrated into criminal law in a way that respects fundamental rights and moral values. The book’s first part approaches these questions from a legal perspective, followed by ethical accounts in part two. The authors address a wide range of topics and approaches: some are more theoretical, like those regarding the foundations of punishment; others are more practical, like those concerning the use of brain scans in the courtroom. Together, they illustrate the thoroughly interdisciplinary nature of the debate, in which science, law and ethics are closely intertwined. This book will appeal in particular to students and scholars of law, neuroscience, criminology, socio-legal studies and philosophy.
