Philosophical Criminology – Professor Andrew Millie

Andrew Millie is Professor of Criminology at Edge Hill University. He will talk about his new book, Philosophical Criminology in which he asks big questions about how we get on with one another and what happens when we do not. The book is structured around six philosophical ideas concerning our relations with others: values, morality, aesthetics, order, rules and respect. Building on Andrew’s theoretical and empirical research, he considers the boundaries of criminology and the scope for greater exchange between criminology and philosophy. This accessible book in Policy Press’s New Horizons in Criminology series is the first to foreground this growing area.

“an adventurous and exciting book with fresh thinking … Well-informed, hugely accessible, and memorable” Loraine Gelsthorpe, University of Cambridge, UK.

“A real tour de force that lays the groundwork for what Millie calls an empathetic criminology, this little gem of a book deserves to be read very widely” Ronnie Lippens, Keele University, UK.

“This book is the new primer for philosophical criminology … it explains why criminology has always been (and must always be) a decidedly philosophical endeavour” Bruce Arrigo, UNC Charlotte, USA.
