Re your comment below:

"Ripley may be a genius, but he is absolutely insane."

Insanity is a legal, not a medical, concept. And by any legal yardstick, Ripley's not insane in the least.

You may call him "sociopathic" or "psychopathic," but neither of these terms are synonyms for "insane."

He knows exactly what he's doing, and he's perfectly capable of controlling his actions. He's evil, not mentally ill.
