In this article,the writer discusses that theories about criminals have been with the field of criminology for thousands of years. The writer notes that while the first theories might have been primitive, they paved the way for advancements in science and technology to propose still more theories. Further, the writer claims that it is likely that other theories will be advanced in the future, and perhaps some of them will work to explain some of the criminal behavior that is still difficult and largely unexplainable today. The writer maintains that the theories have great importance in the field of criminology, as they work to help criminologists and police not only determine why a crime was committed, but perhaps help to stop further crimes in the future. The writer concludes that a crime is still a crime, and individuals and businesses that have been the victims must try to recoup losses.
