Must Punishment Be Intended to Cause Suffering?

Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 16 (4):863-877 (2013)
Abstract
It has recently been suggested that the fact that punishment involves an intention to cause suffering undermines expressive justifications of punishment. I argue that while punishment must involve harsh treatment, harsh treatment need not involve an intention to cause suffering. Expressivists should adopt this conception of harsh treatment
