PHIL 376 - Ethics Of War


Credits: Three (3)
This course explores the ethical dimensions of
the use of military force up to and including
war, both by states and by non-state actors. It
covers not only the decisions and justifications
of using force in the first place, but also the
methods and means of force, once employed. The
course will survey a variety of sources of
military ethics, including international law,
secular political philosophy, and the war ethics
in various world religions.
