Pub. Date:
Analyzing the biographies of some 600 violent criminals, Stone (clinical psychiatry, Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons) has constructed a 22-level "gradations of evil" scale running from justifiable homicide to psychopathic torture-murder with torture as the primary motivation. He examines the psychological and other factors that lead people along this scale and considers the contributions of psychology, psychiatry, and neuroscience to the understanding of evil acts.
