Abstract [en]

This thesis provides an ethical discussion about the merits of rehabilitation as well as retributivism within the modern American penal system.  By utilizing arguments by philosophers Ronald Dworkin and Immanuel Kant I conclude that under certain circumstances the seemingly dissimilar approaches of the rehabilitationist and the retributivist can co-exist.
