Matt-StichterPULLMAN, Wash. – Criminal justice reform, punishment and ethics will be considered by Matt Stichter, Washington State University associate professor of philosophy, at a free, public common reading lecture at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 9, in CUE 203.

He will discuss several theories of punishment at the intersection of ethical theory and the philosophy of law. Despite the differences between these theories, all can provide support for radical reforms of our punitive practices, he said.
