Situational crime prevention (SCP) and rational choice theory (RCT), together, provide an insightful explanation as to why people commit crimes and what can be done to deter them. Much of the work done in RCT and SCP was founded by Derek Cornish and Ronald V. Clarke, who wanted to understand the decision-making process of potential offenders and focus on the spatial and situational factors that make such crime possible (Farrell and Hodgkinson, 2015). This paper aims to explore SCP and its relationship to RCT, as well as analyze the works of Keith Hayward and Graham Farrell in their discussion of these ideas. This paper has four objectives: first, the paper will discuss SCP and RCT and explain the link between the two concepts. Second, this paper will examine Hayward 's discussion of RCT, SCP, and cultural criminology.
Lolita opens with a foreword by the fictional Dr. Ray, and is presented as a confessional for a murder written by the protagonist, Humbert Humbert. Because it is written and told in Humbert’s view, he maintains a sense of power over the other characters in terms of storytelling. The reader is only told the context of events through Humbert’s perspective, or at least what he wants the reader to believe. As the writer of the confessional, Humbert is able to alter names to his liking, or perhaps keep the integrity of the name. Naming is one of the mechanisms demonstrated through his power as a

Foucault was a French philosopher and anthropologist whose work was dedicated to the study of reason and power in modern society in a number of different modalities including the treatment of the insane, in Madness and Civilisation (1961); the sick in Birth of the Clinic (1963); and the criminal in Discipline and Punishment (1975) (Fine 2009:1). As Klages states, Foucault is particularly interested in how discourse creates relations of power/knowledge concerning human bodies. . . He particularly focuses on questions of health and illness, sanity and madness, lawabiding and criminal actions/bodies, and normal and deviant sexualities (2006:144).

Introduction When considering the various applications of David Hume’s moral philosophy, his discussion on the morality of suicide has a great effect on the discussion of ethics and morality more than two-hundred and fifty years later. Our modern Western society is reevaluating its moral code from the ground up year by year in various social issues, which means that it is also becoming unclear what actions are morally permissible. Thus, a critical analysis of Hume’s argument for the moral permissibility of suicide is rather timely. In his essay on suicide, Hume refutes a three-part claim of Thomas Aquinas, a Catholic philosopher and theologian. This essay shows that Hume believes that suicide can be defined as the killing of self that is intended to remove misery and which may or may not be morally justified.
The Implementation of Capital Punishment George Bush once said: “I support the death penalty because I believe, if administered swiftly and justly, capital punishment is a deterrent against future violence and will save other innocent lives" (GOP Debate. Los Angeles, California. 2000). The history of the death penalty dates back to Eighteenth Century B.C. (History of the Death Penalty).
Throughout the novel, To Kill A Mockingbird Lee guides the reader to reflect on the life lesson of the need to empathize with others’ situations before making judgments in order to prevent racial prejudice from happening. In addition, the issue of dehumanization is addressed once society in Maycomb chooses to believe the words of a white man over the words of a black man in trial. Their outlook in standing in a higher position as white hinders them from acknowledging the truth within the words of a man with colored skin. It is demonstrated that it is important for people to ascertain the cause of an individual’s motives before making a judgement because the lack of communication causes society to believe that their assumptions are correct. This creates problems for themselves and
Fyodor Dostoevsky brings forth an interesting idea of exploring philosophy when he writes, “People with new ideas, people with the faintest capacity for saying something new, are extremely few, extraordinarily so, in fact.” In Dostoevsky’s novel, Crime and Punishment, Raskolnikov, an impoverished university drop out, commits a murder to test his original theory that there are extraordinary men who can transgress the rules of society. Through his journey of avoiding punishment and transition into guilt, he struggles and explores aspects of several philosophies. Crime and Punishment best qualifies as a psychological study for the novel’s condemnation of nihilism, criticism of utilitarianism, and reproach of monomania. Throughout the novel, Dostoevsky uses Raskolnikov along with other characters to explore popular emerging psychology in Russia in the 19th century. Russian culture in the 19th century teemed with anguish and poverty.
