Abstract: After an initial discussion (s. 1) of what a theory of criminal law might amount to, I sketch (s. 2) the proper aims of a liberal, republican criminal law, and discuss (ss. 3-4) two central features of such a criminal law: that it deals with public wrongs, and provides for those who perpetrate such wrongs to be called to public account. S. 5 explains why a liberal republic should maintain such a system of criminal law, and s. 6 tackles the issue of criminalization—of how we should determine the proper scope of the criminal law.
