Abstract

The assessment of criminal responsibility is today more difficult for the presence of a large notion of mental illness and for the neurological findings, that portray our choices as predetermined. For criminal scholars, philosophers, forensic psychologists and psychiatrists the questions are: Do these recent results in neurosciences undermine the assumptions about free will that drive criminal law? Do these recent scientific developments change the insanity defense and the judgments of dangerousness?
