Biografie (woord)

Leo Zaibert is Professor and Chair of the Department of Philosophy at Union College, New York.


'I think the books in the field I read are usually intelligent, sometimes sophisticated, but seldom, if ever, is their central insight profound (if true). I think the central insight Zaibert offers - punishment ends moral innocence - really is quite profound.' Stephen P. Garvey, Cornell University, New York
