This lecture explores retributive punishment and the potential puzzles that arise when giving people what they deserve. Even if one takes giving people what they negatively deserve to be intrinsically good, one must confront questions of distribution. First, does retributivism have anything to say about the form and timing of punishment or about how to select among the deserving? That is, if the state must pick a form of punishment or must choose the kinds of crime to focus upon, does retributivism contribute to these selection questions, or are they determined by other considerations? Second, should distributions take into account differential susceptibilities to punishment or prior undeserved suffering? For instance, should it matter that the rich and poor do not experience the same fine as equally punitive?
