Probation and the philosophy of punishment
With the important exception of critiques of rehabilitation, philosophers of punishment do not often have probation as their focus. This (relative) neglect is mutual: when probation policy makers, scholars and practitioners reflect upon their own work, practices and values, the insights of the philosophy of punishment are rarely among their chosen resources. This paper attempts to make some connections and to point to some ways in a fuller engagement might shed a different light on some familiar questions in the philosophy of punishment and enrich thinking about the work of probation.
