For as long as there’s been talk about war, the rights and wrongs of it have been debated. And for just as long, such debates have been ridiculed. War, it’s said, is a world apart with survival at stake. Any talk of law or morality is useless. But is it? Mr. House will explore the “Just War Tradition,” one of the most important attempts to abate the horrors of war and one with a long human history. Most of our current beliefs about aggression, self-defense, the rights of prisoners, the treatment of civilians, atrocities, guerrilla war, and terrorism all spring from the “Just War Tradition.” OLLI and Mr. House offer you a chance to wrestle with this most difficult of subjects: the ethics of war. Come take up the challenge.
