Book review: Reflections on the death penalty by Arthur Koestler and Albert Camus

Cecilia POPA

Abstract: Original article in Romanian: The death penalty has been an ample debated subject over the years, and, unfortunately, the present fails to conclude its existence. We kill in the name of law and we shrug shoulders when we are wrong, convicting innocent people. The reflections on the death penalty written by Arthur Koestler and Albert Camus, with a strict reference to their countries, England and France, are meant to justify the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. But because we still have the capital punishment in the 21st century, it is extremely important to understand what these great moralists have said and ask ourselves how truly necessary is the death penalty.
