 ABOUT THE TITLE
Is crime really so social in its origin that, as Richard Quinney (1966) once said, “crime is a social phenomenon”? This social view of criminality can be contrasted with an opposing view which is more biological in orientation, as shown in the arguments that, for example, “crime is most frequent in second and third decades of life” (that is, among young folks) and “males commit more overall ... crime” (than females).

So, which view is correct here? Contrary to these opposing ideas (and other views as will be discussed in the book), criminality (in relation to heroes and villains) is neither possible (or impossible) nor desirable (or undesirable) to the extent that the respective ideologues (on different sides) would like us to believe.

But the challenge to these opposing views about criminality does not imply that the study of criminality (or criminology in short) is useless, or that those fields of study (related to criminology) like psychology, anthropology, sociology, economics, political science, biology, literature, ethics, religion, and so on should be rejected too. Needless to say, neither of these extreme views is plausible.

Instead, this book offers an alternative (better) way to understand the future of criminality, especially in the dialectic context of heroes and villains — while learning from different approaches in the literature but without favoring any one of them (nor integrating them, since they are not necessarily compatible with each other).

In other words, this book offers a new theory (that is, the reflective theory of criminality) to go beyond the existing approaches in a novel way.

If successful, this seminal project is to fundamentally change the way that we think about criminality, from the combined perspectives of the mind, nature, society, and culture, with enormous implications for the human future and what I originally called its “post-human” fate.

In this book:

• Introduction — The Longevity of Criminality
• Heroes and their Duality
• Villains and their Doubleness
• Conclusion — The Future of Criminality

About the Author: Dr Peter Baofu is the author of 53 new theories in 44 books to provide a visionary challenge to conventional wisdom in all fields of knowledge ranging from the social sciences through the formal sciences and the natural sciences to the humanities, with the final aim for a unified theory of everything.
