In what ways may various ideas help us better understand its nature? Is there a more effective alternative to being punished? Is there no complexity to it? In what ways might our understanding of punishment be improved by incorporating findings from the empirical sciences? What aspects of our psyche, our biology, and our social environment are influenced by the practice of corporal punishment?
