Crime, Punishment and Responsibility: the Legal Philosophy of Antony Duff

Friday, 25 May 2012, University of Stirling

This one-day conference will celebrate the work of Prof. Antony Duff, who for
many years has been one of the world’s foremost philosophers of criminal law.
In numerous books and scholarly articles, Duff has developed a persuasive
liberal-communitarian theory of law and its institutions.  His communicative
theory of punishment has been central to the recent renaissance of
retributivism in the philosophy of criminal law. That theory – along with his
classic works on criminal attempts, on responsibility, and on the criminal
trial – has shaped the discipline.

The following speakers will present papers relating to themes in Duff’s work:
 Antje duBois-Pedain (University of Cambridge)
 Alon Harel (Hebrew University)
 Michael Moore (University of Illinois)
 Tatjana Hoernle (Humboldt University, Berlin)
 Victor Tadros (Warwick University)

Respondents will include Andrew Ashworth (University of Oxford) and Suzanne
Uniacke (Hull University), plus Antony Duff (Stirling/Minnesota) himself.

There are a limited number of places available, at a cost of £20 each (to cover
lunch and refreshments through the day).  Please email Nikki.Leavitt@stir.ac.uk
to register for this event.

With thanks for financial support from the Scots Philosophical Association, the
Society for Applied Philosophy, and the Cambridge Forum for Legal and Political
