The Psychopathology of Evil Children

August 28, 2011

Some children—thankfully few—are born without a conscience or the ability to feel compassion.

Michael Stone is professor of clinical psychiatry at the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. From 2006 to 2008, Stone hosted the series “Most Evil” on the Discovery Channel, for which he developed a “Gradations of Evil Scale” to rank homicides from 1 to 22 based on their level of evil. He has written 10 books, including “The Anatomy of Evil.”
