Results don't Matter
This chapter argues that harm resulting from culpability is immaterial, and that an actor who is culpable for choosing to risk harm to others and their interests for insufficient reasons sets forth the necessary and sufficient conditions for blameworthiness and punishment. It includes comments by some of the nation's top legal scholars from the field of criminal law, tackling topics such as the reducibility of crime and why criminal harm matters.
