Arguments favoring & opposing criminalization are weighed on a simple beam balance- the weightier reasons prevail. Jonathan Schonsheck argues that this methodology is deeply flawed- among other infirmities, it fosters the neglect of items essential to a defensible decision.

He urges the adoption of filtering -a multi-step procedure which directs one to discuss the moral authority of the state, to consider measures less coercive than a criminal statute, & to investigate the pragmatic consequences of criminalization. This procedure, he argues, imposes a structure on disputes which facilitates philosophical progress. Filtering is then applied to an array of public policy issues, including laws which require the use of automobile seat belts & motorcycle helmets, & laws which prohibit the use of certain psychoactive substances (drugs).

Additionally, the book addresses a number of more theoretical issues in the philosophy of the criminal law. Throughout, it engages the work of leading philosophers: Derek Parfit, Cass R. Sunstein, Richard J. Arneson, & especially Joel Feinberg.
