[The] Ethics of War (21456). 3 units. This course will explore the Western tradition of just and unjust wars, in order to gain an understanding of when and how the set of practices to which we refer as "war" justifies killing that would otherwise be considered mass murder, and to work out what ethical rules ought to be required for the justification and the prosecution of war. The emphasis will be on ethical argument, not international law. Paper required. Enrollment limited. S.L. Carter.
