The attached files should aid you in writing the paper. I have attached some readings of punishment and the paper guidelines for your reference. You may or may not need all these for reference but they are there incase you need them. Compare Mabbott’s theory of punishment with the nullification theory of punishment (Anderson). On balance, which theory do you think is the better theory of the ideal basis for punishment? NOTE: This means that you MUST NOT conclude that the two theories are equally good (or equally bad).1 Provide arguments in support of your conclusion. You should also identify potential weaknesses in the position that you support and explain what makes that position nevertheless superior in some way to the other considered. You may use either arguments that we developed in class or which were developed in the course readings, or construct your own arguments. You are FORBIDDEN to use arguments based on materials from outside this course. This is NOT a research paper. Of course, before arguing for or against a theory of punishment, you must first explain what that theory is.
