J. Bryan Hehir
The course will examine normative discourse about the use of force. Primary attention will be paid analytically and historically to the "Just War/Just Defense" ethic. Reading and lectures will assess the ethic in light of challenges to it from the tradition of nonviolence and from the nature of modern warfare. The ethic will be tested in light of distinct challenges posed by weapons of mass destruction, humanitarian military intervention, and response to terrorism.
