RUNNING HEAD-WRITING THE HYPOTHESIS Course Project Insanity as a Defense Mechanism in Criminology Jackie Gifford 1 RUNNING HEAD-WRITING THE HYPOTHESIS 2 Hypothesis A criminology and psychology professional’s position on the insanity defense is a function of their underlying worldview and ideology. Summary The insanity defense is a controversial topic in criminology with input from the field of psychology. As such, it has many professionals on both sides of the argument with various reasons being provided in defense or against the insanity defense. This research will engage the input of various professionals in criminology and psychology who have written on the topic of insanity defense. A systematic review of this literature will seek to understand their arguments and whether they are consistent with their ideological views about other issues in society. For instance, is there a relation between the professional’s conservatism or liberal ideology and their position on the insanity defense? This review can be supplemented with exploratory study using a survey and involving professionals in the criminology and psychology fields. Using a systematic analysis and a survey of professionals will allow triangulation in understanding perceptions of professionals on the insanity defense better.
