The expressive thinking in criminology

Summary

This issue is about the 'illegal science' of literature, film, television, video games and rap music. With reference to Friedrich Nietzsche, it is said that they are the doctors of our culture. In their diagnosis, these sciences establish the relevance and value of topical events, revealing aspects of 'crime and punishment' that are still invisible to criminology. Not as fans, but as criminologists or storytellers, the authors were asked to discuss the expressive thinking in literature, film, television, video games and rap music.
