CONCEPTUAL DEVELOPMENTS IN PSYCHOPATHY AND THEIR PHILOSOPHICAL IMPLICATIONS:
WHO IS GUILTY?
Abstract: The seminar will examine the history and some of the pivotal contemporary research findings about psychopathy and, with reference to developments in the field of epigenetics, consider how these findings might challenge some of our previous assumptions about psychopathy. It will also address why some philosophers have suggested that the profile of psychopaths, as it has developed, might have implications about the level of moral accountability and moral agency that can be ascribed to their crimes or from another vertex to ask, when it comes to psychopathy, who is guilty?
