Crime and human nature: a Marxist perspective.

  • Academic Journal
  • Contemporary Crises; Jun88, Vol. 12 Issue 2, p145-171, 27p
  • This paper explores a Marxist interpretation of the relationship between crime and human nature. Arguments are reviewed as they appear in the writings of Marx and Hegel. Evidence for these arguments is then sought from contemporary materials in sociology and social psychology. Further evidence is presented in the form of case studies collected in a maximum security prison. We conclude with a discussion of the ethical and methodological implications of this approach.
