Kerrin A. Jacobs (2012) Soziopathie: Eine Untersuchung moralischer Unfähigkeit. Uelvesbüll: Der Andere Verlag. (319 S.)


This books aims to bridge the perspectives of meta-ethics, philosophy of psychiatry, and psychology. Against the backdrop of a discussion on the concept of mental disorder and its application to psychopathy, I focus on current moralpsychological considerations on moral incapacity. Psychopathy illustrates ex negativo which abilities a person needs to have in order to be able to adopt a moral point of view.
