Abstract:   (1498 Views)
The forward text is a description of abolition and termination of death penalty in the modern world and explanations that different sociological views are drawn to this decline. The first part is the death penalty in pre modern world, a world that can be considered as the age of death penalty, the second section is about the fall of this kind of punishment in human societies. The third part is about the typology of sociological theory that has been explaining this change. In this text we will talk about four types of theory, functionalist theory, political economy of the death penalty, Foucauldian theory and finally culturalist theory.  The fourth category, however, are those that explain such change with the help of culture and believe that gradually in the modern world, structure of the feelings of human beings have changed, and the modern human beings nourished another, and therefore, the behavior with the body of criminals finds new meaning and form.
Keywords: death penalty, death penalty decline, sociological explanation
