Peace (Forum for Philosophy)

4 February 2020, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

Peace is highly valued, but how is it achieved? Why are some periods in world history relatively peaceful compared to others? What, if anything, can be done to ensure peace now? Are there limits to what we are justified in doing to ensure peace? Is pacifism a justified response to war? Join us as we discuss the history, ethics, and politics of peace.
