Auteur: Honderich, Ted
Titel: Terrorism For Humanity
Sub titel: Inquiries in Political Philosophy
What can be said for and against terrorism and political violence? When is such terrorism right, if it ever is, and when is it wrong? Here, Ted Honderich challenges the presuppositions, inconsistencies and prejudices of liberal-democratic thinking. He tackles such emotive subjects as the IRA, the PLO and the ANC, arguing the importance of understanding the justification for political violence in all its manifestations. Exploring the moral issues that lie at the heart of these difficult questions, Honderich reminds us that political philosophy should be an attempt to inquire with an open mind and - and that to open one's mind it is not necessarily to lose one's convictions.
