Biografie (woord)

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


'Zaibert introduces a novel perspective for thinking about traditional problems in attempts to justify punishment. Moral and legal philosophers who despair that we are stuck at an impasse and that nothing new and important remains to be said should put Rethinking Punishment at the top of their pile.' Douglas Husak, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Rutgers University, New Jersey
