Terrorism and Just War

Remains of Chruch

Michael Walzer, Professor Emeritus, School of Social Science. This lecture attempts to answer multiple questions: First, what is wrong with terrorism? The question may seem easy, but it is often answered badly.

Second, how is terrorism chosen - picked out of all the possible political strategies? And third, how ought we to fight against terrorism? Or better, what are the moral limits that anti-terrorists ought to recognize?
