In his work, society is the framework of humanity and gives it meaning, whereas religion acts as the tool to explain it.

- There is an attempt in criminology to find an all-encompassing theory of crime in order to develop a more scientific approach to crime. This means that a universal theory of crime must be devised.

This of course, has sparked a debate among criminologists as to whether rational choice offers a complete explanation of all kinds of crime or its validity is reduced when dealing with crimes of anger, hostility and excitement (Farrell, 2010)....   [tags: Crime Prevention Essays]
