From the reviews of the third edition: "In the Third Edition of Responsibility and Punishment, Angelo Corlett has made an outstanding book even better! Corlett's book is distinctive in the way it blends abstract theory with concrete application in a sophisticated way. There is work just on theory, and primarily applied work; but Corlett manages to meld the two in a unique and highly successful way. Highly recommended!" (John Martin Fischer, author of "The Metaphysics of Free Will" and "Responsibility and Control") "This provocative and highly insightful piece of work constitutes a novel, significant, and welcome contribution to the literature on the moral justification of punishment. Corlett's development of an original version of retributivism, with special emphasis on principles of proportional punishment, is particularly engaging." (Ishtiyaque Haji, author of "Deontic Morality" and "Moral Appraisability") "J. Angelo Corlett, in Responsibility and Punishment 3rd edition, argues that to take justice seriously, the state is obligated to punish criminal offenders like the Garridos in proportion to the harm they have caused. He argues for a theory of retributive punishment in which criminals receive punishment based on the degree to which they are responsible. ... I recommend it to anyone interested in questions of moral responsibility and questions about punishment." (Josef Thomas Simpson, Metapsychology Online Reviews, Vol.13 (48), November, 2009)
