Ethics, Killing and War
Cambridge University Press, 9 בפבר׳ 1995 - 256 עמודים
Can war ever be justified? Why is it wrong to kill? In this new book Richard Norman looks at these and other related questions, and thereby examines the possibility and nature of rational moral argument. Practical examples, such as the Gulf War and the Falklands War, are used to show that, while moral philosophy can offer no easy answers, it is a worthwhile enterprise that sheds light on many pressing contemporary problems.
