Product Details

Praise

Philosophers and psychologists love psychopaths. They seem like a test case which was tailor-made to probe contested claims and theories… Being Amoral provides a good overview of the current state of debate regarding psychopathy and the diagnostic, conceptual and practical issues associated with it… a valuable contribution to the literature, which I recommend to anyone working in moral psychology and empirically informed meta-ethics.—Ethical Theory and Moral Practice

Psychopathy is an endlessly fascinating disorder for philosophers and lay people alike. Thomas Schramme has collected 12 essays from leading researchers to explore the nature and implications of psychopathic amorality. (T)his valuable collection (…) will shed further light on what is required for moral agency, moral community, and moral responsibility.

Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

The essays in this book are thoughtful and well-written. The editor Thomas Schramme ably summarises the many conceptual problems that arise when we examine the morality of psychopaths. This book will appeal to psychiatrists with an interest in moral philosophy and to forensic psychiatrists who have to deal with patients so labelled.
