Ethics and Weapons of Mass Destruction: Religious and Secular Perspectives

Cambridge University Press, 19 Jul 2004 - 533 halaman
This volume offers a unique perspective on the discussion of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) by broadening the terms of the debate to include both secular and religious investigations not normally considered. The volume contains a structured dialogue between representatives of the following ethical traditions: Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, feminism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, liberalism, natural law, pacifism, and realism. All the authors address the same set of moral issues and this creates a dialogue both within and across traditions.
