Malcolm Friedman Anne Redding AJ 125 12 September 2011 Understanding Crime When we read chapter three in our textbook we are introduced to the many theologies when studying crime. Studies include, Classical Criminology, Positivist Criminology, and the idea of Biological Determinism. But before we analyze these sources of information, we must define them and interpret their meaning. Classical Criminology in itself, is the “philosophical approach to understanding crime” (Redding). If we look deeper into the roots of this study, we realize the ideology rooted believes and relies on the idea that all individuals who commit crime, choose to partake in this act, after educating themselves of the consequences of their actions. In other words, each crime perpet- rated by the individual has been planned and premeditated. Classical criminologists justify this assumption when they state that we as individuals have free will, more or less, we are respons- ible for our actions granted that we are the ones who physically make our choices.
