Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The work examines the role played by the progressive knowledge of biological correlates related to mental states. On the one hand it excludes the attitude, which is often deduced hastily, to resolve in a deterministic sense the question inherent in the choice and pursuit of ends by human beings; on the other hand, we highlight the limits of a penal system that uses, in a simplifying sense, the reference to the freedom of will as a presupposition of condemning (excluding any effective relief of the person's conviction in cases where his guilt is not ruled out at the root) legal). Rather, we hope for an enhancement of individual autonomy that is directed towards the future, as the ability to re-elaborate, even in a reparative sense, the commission of the crime and make new life choices.
