International Ethics in A Divided World (6 points)


Leader: Roger Spegele

Clayton First semester 2003 (Day)
Clayton First semester 2004 (Day)

Synopsis: The claim that international relations has something to do with ethics and morality is widely held to be an oxymoron. This unit attempts to show that such a claim does not bear critical scrutiny. In particular, the subject establishes the way in which our understanding of ethics is bound up with a variety of other beliefs about world politics such as whether we are disposed to accept a liberal, realist or emancipatory view as our general conceptual framework.
