What Is Lombroso's Ethical Work?

Decent Essays
Lombroso’s work was under heavy criticism throughout time with all types of scientist who viewed his work and made ethical decisions. His statistics were critiqued by Charles Goring, in his book published in 1913 titled The English Convict; he “praises Lombroso for his humanitarianism but makes a vitriolic attack upon his research methods” (Wolfgang 378). According to the research made by Marvin E. Wolfgang, the “development of standard deviations around the mean, regression lines, and probable errors constituted a wide difference indeed” because of this information his work was made more questionable. Although his work was criticized by many, Lombroso was still a huge influence around the world to all scientists.
