Morality and Political Violence by Professor C. A. J. Coady

Book Description

Political violence in the form of wars, insurgencies, terrorism and violent rebellion constitutes a major human challenge. C. A. J. Coady brings a philosophical and ethical perspective as he places the problems of war and political violence in the frame of reflective ethics. In this book, Coady re-examines a range of urgent problems pertinent to political violence against the background of a contemporary approach to just war thinking. The problems examined include: the right to make war and conduct war, terrorism, revolution, humanitarianism, mercenary warriors, the ideal of peace and the right way to end war. Coady attempts to vindicate the contemporary relevance of the just war tradition to current problems without applying the tradition in a merely mechanical or uncritical fashion.

Messy Morality by Professor C. A. J. Coady Messy Morality, Hardback (November 2008)

Tony Coady explores the challenges that morality poses to politics. He steers a course between realism, which rejects morality in politics, and moralism, which has a distorting influence on a realistic political morality; he seeks to rehabilitate the concept of ideals; and he discusses the contentious topics of 'dirty hands' and lying in politics.

What's Wrong with Moralism? by Professor C. A. J. Coady What's Wrong with Moralism?, Paperback (June 2006)

* This thought-provoking book looks at what people mean when they accuse others of being "moralistic". * Written by an international team of philosophers. * Analyses what the "vice" of moralism might be and contrasts this with a genuine concern for morality.

Testimony by Professor C. A. J. Coady Testimony, Paperback (October 1994)

The role of testimony in the getting of reliable belief or knowledge is a central but neglected epistemological issue. In this work of original philosophy, Professor Coady explores the nature of testimony and the philosophical debates about it, in order to show how it might be defended as a source of knowledge.
