“Born Criminals”, “Degenerates”, and “Psychopaths”. On the History of Criminal Psychology in Germany (2009)

I gave a paper on
“Criminal Psychology and the Idea of Eugenics (Rassenhygiene) and Degeneration in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries”
at theConference „Heteronomous Modernization & Transaction in Medicine: Germany, Korea, Taiwan and Japan“, University of Tokyo (Komaba), September 20th, 2008.

It was published in:

Transaction in Medicine & Heteronomous Modernization. Germany, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. Ed. By Shizu Sakai, Tatsuo Sakai, Christian Oberländer, und Yasutaka Ichinokawa.Tokyo: The University of Tokyo Center for Philosophy (UTCP) 2009 (UTCP Booklet; 9); pp. 33-47.

The article is based on my former German treatise
