Sandu Antonio (2015) Three Perspectives on the Ethics of Punishment, sustinuta la  7th LUMEN International Conference –  Multidimensional Education and Professional Development. Ethical Values – MEPDEV 2015, 12th – 14th November 2015, Targoviste, Romania

In this article we aim to achieve a clarification of the ethical foundations  and of penal philosophies which construct today the idea of criminal punishment: retributive justice, utilitarian justice, justice centered on human rights and restorative justice. Retributive justice, classic paradigm of punishment understanding, stemming from the law of retaliation is grounded on reciprocity, being based on distributive justice model, the purpose of punishment is retribution of the perpetrator for the act committed.
