Vaclav Chytil and His Conception of Guilt and Punishment
University of Trnava Law School
July 13, 2008
This paper tries to highlight and briefly analyze most important aspects from the work "Guilt and Punishment - Legal and Philosophical Treatise" written by Czechoslovak legal philosopher Vaclav Chytil. The treatise is interesting because of its origin (it was written during Chytil's imprisonment in the work camps around Pribram and Jachymov after the communist revolution in Czechoslovakia) as well as because of author's unique interpretation of relevant issues. Chytil's considerations are focused mainly on two basic problems in the field of philosophy of criminal law - the question of free will and theories of punishment.
