As we saw in the previous chapter, Moore presents two accounts of retributivism’s place within the normative universe. According to one of these versions, his not so famous retributivism which I have dubbed restrained retributivism, what is distinctive about retributivism is the view that punishing the deserving is intrinsically good. Here Moore is humble, in ways which are useful for my purposes of establishing the normative import of retributivism. But in Moore’s central and most famous version of retributivism, which I have dubbed unbridled retributivism, he defends a much more ambitious account of retributivism, one which is, for reasons I discussed in the previous chapter and for more reasons which I shall present shortly, difficult to accept.
