To Do, To Die, To Reason Why

Individual Ethics in War

Victor Tadros

  • An original and ambitious integrated discussion of moral political and legal questions concerning the ethics of armed conflict
  • Connects the philosophy of war with a wide range of issues in moral, legal and political philosophy.
  • Defends highly controversial conclusions, e.g. about the importance of political and military authority for war, and the relative unimportance of the distinction between combatants and non-combatants in both morality and law
