Werner Participates in Panel Discussion at McGill

Rick Werner, the John Stewart Kennedy Professor of Philosophy, spoke at Author Meets Critics: a panel discussion of the newly released 2nd ed.  of Duane Cady’s From Warism to Pacifism at "The Obama Years: War, Peace, and Environmental Stability," at McGill University, Montreal, on Oct. 29-30.

 

Werner noted Cady’s distinction between absolute pacifism (Cady plausibly argues that not even Gandhi or King held the view) and various forms of conditional pacifism: that the burden of proof is on those who would wage war and that it is a difficult burden that is rarely met in the actual world because of the disproportionate number of innocents (e.g., children) knowingly killed in modern wars (e.g., Vietnam, Iraq, or Afghanistan).
