It turns out I forgot to post about this article when it was first published, but now I do:

“Retributivism and Uncertainty” is a popular and much shorter version of my peer-reviewed paper “Retributivism, Justification and Credence: The Epistemic Argument Revisited”. The latter is pretty technical and hard to read, at least for non-philosophers, despite the fact that the basic ideas should be easy enough to grasp, and its relevance for debates about crime and punishment. I’m therefore happy that there’s a popular version out there too.
