    classical theory criminology


    Classical criminology posits that individuals commit crimes when the benefits outweigh the risks. Rooted in rational choice theory, it emphasizes free will and the importance of deterrence through swift and certain punishment. Key figures like Cesare Beccaria and Jeremy Bentham argued for proportionate punishments to deter crime and advocated for a fair and efficient legal system. This theory underpins modern criminal justice systems and policies, focusing on crime prevention and deterrence strategies.
