About this book

Peace and War: Historical, Philosophical, and Anthropological Perspectives is an accessible, higher-level critical discussion of philosophical commentaries on the nature of peace and war. It introduces and analyses various philosophies of peace and war, and their continuing theoretical and practical relevance for peace studies and conflict resolution. Using a combination of both historical and contemporary philosophical perspectives, the book is at once eclectic in its approach and broad in its inquiry of these enduring phenomena of human existence.

Reviews

"Interdisciplinary yet uncompromisingly philosophical, this collection takes the reader on a global journey of peace and conflict. From Bartolome de Las Casas and the atrocities of colonization to the Tao Te Ching and living a life of goodness, we are reminded of who we have been and who we might yet become. A timely, sobering reminder of the potentiality of violence and the necessity of education for peace."
John E. Petrovic, Professor of Educational Foundations and Policy Studies, The University of Alabama, USA


“This edited volume is impressively historically and contextually sensitive, and includes a number of chapters on underserved, forgotten, or otherwise neglected theorists and works. Thus, it is valuable for anyone who is concerned to have a truly global understanding of war and peace.”
Jennifer Kling, Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Center for Legal Studies, University of Colorado, USA
