However, this is not seen as a solid basis upon which absolute doubt, required by Descartes, can be built. Ironically, his skepticism offers such that I am in a state of doubt, I will also have doubt about the possibility that there could even be a deceiving being. As such, my doubt about the possibility of such a being serves to undermine the greater doubt that is supposed to be generated by this being. In order for the evil demon to generate such a degree of doubt it must be possible for it to exist. However, Descartes does not provide enough proof for his claim of its possibility.
The insanity defense is available to those with serious mental illnesses as a legal excuse for criminal responsibility (Felthous, 2010). The insanity defense continues to be debated and has both legal and mental health professionals questioning whether psychopathic disorders should qualify under the defense or not. The history of criminal responsibility dates back to 1838 when Isaac Ray published his famous book in which he argued that those who committed criminal offences should not be found guilty due to their “moral mania” (Felthous, 2010). The most famous and influential case however was of Daniel M’Naghten who, in 1843, fatally shot the prime minister of England’s secretary while suffering from a paranoid delusion. This case led to the widely adopted McNaughton Rules (Felthous, 2010).

On the other hand, diminished capacity is the concept that comes from the idea that certain mental disorders may reduce an offenders’ culpability. Diminished capacity is closely related to the insanity defense but does not consider the offender to be legally insane. A successful defense sees the offender as guilty but usually result in a mitigated punishment. The Texas Penal Code does not consider diminished capacity as an affirmative defense but instead uses the defense during the prosecution phase once the defendant has been found guilty. Diminished capacity includes an array of mental disorders varying from depression to schizophrenia.
