Psychopathy without (the language of) disorder

Neuroethics 1 (3):185-198 (2008)
Abstract
Psychopathy is often characterized in terms of what I call “the language of disorder.” I question whether such language is necessary for an accurate and precise characterization of psychopathy, and I consider the practical implications of how we characterize psychopathy—whether as a biological, or merely normative, disorder.
