Example text

11 We can’t literally make a victim or society whole in the sense of restoring them to the state they were in before the crime occurred, but through punishment we can reaffirm the values that were transgressed and make the criminal feel the wrong he committed. This is the true sense of retribution, “to pay back,” to even the scales put askew by an act of criminal wrongdoing. We must punish because we value one another and society, because we respect the inherent dignity in each of us and wish to reaffirm these values on which our lives and society are, or ought to be, based.

Without God to impose meaning from the outside, we must create this meaning for ourselves. But if this meaning is to be powerful enough to sustain a life, it can come only from a commitment of our whole selves to a project. ”17 Is this so? Could you or I become an Übermensch? Or does it take a very special kind of person? ”18 But perhaps it is a goal worth aspiring to. Who Watches the Übermensch? We now have a rough idea of what Nietzsche meant by the Übermensch and why he considered the concept so important.

Yost, “Kant’s Justification of the Death Penalty Reconsidered,” given at the American Philosophical Association’s Central Division Meeting, April 2008.
