dc.description.abstractEncourages one to think about the framing of questions that concern matters of great significance such as capital punishment and highlights that rationality is not just a matter of internal coherence—rule following and the like—but must extend to questioning the assumptions within which those processes occur. Addresses the argument that the death penalty should be eliminated because of the risk of executing an innocent person. Further discusses why the risk of wrongful executions is a vacuous reason to eliminate the death penalty.en_US
