Rousseau and the State of War
Speaker(s): Professor Chris Bertram
Recorded on 11 December 2012 in Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building.
What can Rousseau’s recently reconstructed fragment Principles of the Right of War tell us about war and “humanitarian intervention” today? Are the principles of just war theory simply a fig leaf for power?
Chris Bertram is professor of social and political philosophy at the University of Bristol.
