Ethics and Weapons of Mass Destruction: Religious and Secular Perspectives (Ethikon Series in Comparative Ethics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume offers a unique perspective on the discussion of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) by broadening the terms of the debate to include secular as well as religious investigations not normally considered. Its contributed essays feature a structured dialogue between representatives of the following ethical traditions-- Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, feminism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, liberalism, natural law, pacifism, and realism--who address identical moral issues in order to create a dialogue both within and across traditions.

Synopsis:

Discussion of weapons of mass destruction from a number of religious and secular perspectives.
