Psychological jurisprudence--or the use of psychology in the legal realm--relies on theories and methods of criminal justice and mental health to make decisions about intervention, policy, and programming. While the intentions behind the law-psychology field are humane, the results often are not. This book provides a "radical" agenda for psychological jurisprudence, one that relies on the insights of literary criticism, psychoanalysis, feminist theory, political economy analysis, postmodernism, and related strains of critical thought. Contributors reveal the roots of psycholegal logic and demonstrate how citizen justice and structural reform are displaced by so-called science and facts. A number of complex issues in the law-psychology field are addressed, including forensic mental health decision-making, parricide, competency to stand trial, adolescent identity development, penal punitiveness, and offender rehabilitation. In exploring how the current resolution to these and related controversies fail to promote the dignity or empowerment of persons with mental illness, this book suggests how the law-psychology field can meaningfully contribute to advancing the goals of justice and humanism in psycholegal theory, research, and policy.

Addresses the question: Can we apply ordinary standards of responsibility to the mentally disordered offender?In The Rules of Insanity, Carl Elliott draws on philosophy and psychiatry to develop a conceptual framework for judging the moral responsibility of mentally ill offenders. Arguing that there is little useful that can be said about the responsibility of mentally ill offenders in general, Elliott looks at specific mental illnesses in detail; among them schizophrenia, manic-depressive disorders, psychosexual disorders such as exhibitionism and voyeurism, personality disorders, and impulse control disorders such as kleptomania and pyromania. He takes a particularly hard look at the psychopath or sociopath, who many have argued is incapable of understanding morality. Making extensive use of psychiatric case histories, Elliott explores the various ways in which mental illness can affect a person’s intentions and thus excuse him or her from moral responsibility."This is the best discussion of the insanity defense and diminished capacity that I have seen from an ethics point of view. Other treatments tend to be more legally oriented and to make light of the more fundamental philosophical and ethical issues. What is special is the author's easy familiarity with the clinical problems (he is a physician), his well reasoned, well written, jargon free argument, and his capacity to go back and forth from general principles to particular cases and disorders. This book has a unique niche--its conclusions are responsible--it teaches a lot." -- Michael Schwartz, M.D., Case Western Reserve University
