Rate this:
The philosophy of positivism of criminology -- the belief in a scientific approach to the study of crime -- has been widely challenged. In Positive Criminology leading proponents respond to the criticisms and assert the validity and value of the positivist paradigm. They define modern positive criminology and discuss important criminological issues from a positivistic perspective. The contributions demonstrate the value of this paradigm for understanding crime and solving the problems it presents.
