Delicate Balance: What Philosophy Can Tell Us About Terrorism
Trudy Govier (au). Did the world change on 9/11? For those who live outside of N.Y. or Wash., DC, life’s familiar pace persists. Yet everything seems different because of the dramatic disturbance to our sense of what our world means & how we exist within it. Here, philosopher Govier writes that it is because our feelings & attitudes have altered so fundamentally that our world has changed. She believes that there are ethical challenges we cannot ignore. From Plato & Aristotle on courage, to Kant on revenge, to 20th cent. philospher John Rawls’s views on justice, Govier mines the world of philosophy to reflect on terrorism. She argues that moral complexities such as victimhood, evil, power, & revenge, if properly understood, can provide a basis for hope -- not despair.
