Introduction The questions 'why punish?' and 'how much?' are located within
political and social theories for which the relationship between the State and the
criminal offender is the defining concern.1 We ask in what circumstances the
imposition of punishment on the offender by the State can be justified at all and,

punishment. Here the focus is upon what may be termed the 'State-offender axis'.

Or should he be regarded as none of these things, but simply as an example
through which it can be demonstrated to other men that anti-social conduct does
not pay?"3 The Debate over Criminal Punishment There has been a long-
standing debate among legal and social philosophers over both the purpose of
punishment — Why do we punish? What are our goals in administering
punishment? — and its moral justification: What entitles us to punish? How much
should we punish?
