Wojciech Załuski

The philosophical basis of this book was the personalist view of human beings. I have provided several philosophical arguments in its favor, but one can add in this place also a pragmatic one, viz. there are some empirical findings which demonstrate that disbelief in free will (a crucial part of this view) leads to increased aggression, to increased tendency to lie and cheat, to decreased willingness to help others, and to conformist behavior (cf. Baumeister 2010). This pragmatic argument is obviously controversial and, even if true, of secondary importance; nonetheless it is undoubtedly worth mentioning. I have argued that several important consequences flow from the personalist view with regard to the insanity defense.

The Insanity Defense

A Philosophical Analysis

Wojciech Załuski

This unique book provides a versatile exploration of the philosophical foundations of the insanity defense. It examines the connections between numerous philosophical–anthropological views and analyses different methods for regulating the criminal responsibility of the mentally ill. Placing its philosophical analysis firmly in the context of science, it draws on the fields of cognitive psychology, evolutionary theory and criminology. In this thought-provoking book, Wojciech Załuski argues that the way in which we resolve the problem of the criminal responsibility of the mentally ill depends on two factors: the assumed conception of responsibility and the account of mental illness.

The book highlights key issues such as infiltration of the legal supply chain and the involvement of organised crime, analysing relevant EU law and demonstrating the challenges of CFM.

International Justice in the United Nations General Assembly probes the role that the UN’s plenary body has played in developing international criminal law and addressing country-specific impunity gaps. It covers the General Assembly’s norm-making capabilities, its judicial and investigatory functions, and the legal effect of its recommendations. With talk of a ‘new Cold War’ and growing levels of plenary activism in the face of Security Council deadlock, this book will make for timely and essential reading for all in the field of international criminal justice.
