Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The recent corporate scandals, the serious environmental disasters and the global financial crisis force the scholar to focus attention on the personological characteristics of the white-collar criminal and on the cognitive processes that are at the base of the decisions of the participants in the organization. These aspects have long been neglected by the scientific literature, but this disinterest is no longer justifiable in the light of modern neuroscientific and cognitive and social psychology studies, from which we learn that the personality can make a subject, with equal opportunities and position , more prone to the commission of the crime. The presence in the corporate organizations of so-called toxic leaders, subjects with psychopathic traits who hold management positions in the company, questions criminal law not only on issues of insanity defense, but also on preventing economic crime. So that the criminal law can therefore represent a resource in these terms it is necessary to deepen the knowledge of the agent's person also from the point of view of imputability, in a way that is consistent with the theories on the commonly shared functions of punishment.
