Mad or Bad? - Are murderers suffering from psychiatric illnesses or can they simply be labelled as evil?

1009PSY - Introduction to Psychological Science and Society

8 Pages Griffith University Essay / Project Year: Pre-2016

This essay seeks to explore the difference between madness and badness in homicide, with particular reference to psychopathy and psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia. It evaluates several studies to illustrate this point, and aimed for the most recently-published material available for free. Special attention should be brought to the argument provided by Maibom (2004), which was especially instrumental in the construction of the essay. ‘Mad’ is defined as uncontrollable psychotic disorders, while ‘bad’ is defined as the more stable psychopathy and its actions.
