The Mechanics of Claims and Permissible Killing in War

Alec D. Walen

  • Offers the most complete development to date of a new and comprehensive account of moral rights
  • Explains why the standard model of rights, according to which more stringent rights or a lesser evil can justify infringing rights is substantively implausible
  • Defends the unintuitive claim that it is easier to justify intentionally killing an innocent threat than killing an innocent bystander as a side effect
