PHIL/POLI/PWAD 272.002 – The Ethics of Peace, War, and Defense
Instructor: Karl Adam. This course meets MTWRF 1:15 – 2:45 p.m. in CW 213.
This is a course in practical ethics focusing on ethical issues surrounding war. Questions we will address include, among others:
is war ever morally justified? If so, under what circumstances?
What may soldiers, and other combatants, in a war morally do?
Does this depend on whether they are fighting on the just side of the war? And is terrorism ever morally justified?
