Robert Kerin CC1024D-10M Unit 5 10/2/2009 Punishment and sentencing have gone through various phases throughout the history of Western civilization?” Punishment (n.) a. The act or an instance of punishing. b. The condition of being punished. 2. A penalty imposed for wrongdoing: "The severity of the punishment must . . . be in keep- ing with the kind of obligation which has been violated" (Simone Weil). 3. Rough handling; mistreatment: These old skis have taken a lot of punishment over the years. Punishment has been a standard in western civilizations throughout history. Something about Every civilization with a government and laws must have a way to enforce those laws, else the laws become obsolete. Society then came up with the concept of punishment for those laws. I would talk about it from a sociology point of view, why punishment is needed in society and how punishment can be traced back as far as there were set laws to be broken.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
