People punished by law are treated in ways that we consider immoral
in other contexts. In Punishment as Societal-Defense, Phillip
Montague develops a new theory of punishment that, instead of
justifying it on the basis of deterrence or retribution, constructs
it as analogous to individual self-defense. If people are justified
in defending themselves against wrongful aggression, Montague
argues, the same principles of distributive justice underlie
punishment as societal defense.
