A Kantian Perspective

eBook - 2000
Rate this:
Employs a Kantian perspective to emphasize human rights protection, the rule of international law, and a global concept of justice. Orend (philosophy, U. of Waterloo, Canada) contends that Kant's just war doctrine has not been given its due and therefore explains and updates Kant for the present time. Along the way, Orend criticizes both pacifism and realism, explores the nature of human rights protection during war, defends a theory of just war, and looks ahead to global institutional reform, especially with regard to justice after the war.
