Morality and political violence by C. A. J Coady ( Book )
10 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Political violence in the form of wars, insurgencies, terrorism, and violent rebellion constitutes a major human challenge today as it has so often in the past. It is a challenge not only to life and limb, but also to morality itself. In this book, C.A.J. Coady brings a philosophical and ethical perspective to the subject. He places the problems of war and political violence in the frame of reflective ethics. In clear and accessible language, Coady reexamines a range of urgent problems pertinent to political violence against the background of a contemporary approach to just war thinking. The problems examined include the right to make war, the right way to conduct war, terrorism, revolution, humanitarianism, mercenary warriors, conscientious objection, combatant and noncombatant status, the ideal of peace and the right way to end war, pacifism, weapons of mass destruction, and supreme emergency exemptions from just war prohibition. Coady attempts to vindicate the relevance of the just war tradition to conternporary problems without applying the tradition in a merely mechanical or uncritical fashion."--Jacket

What's wrong with moralism? ( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Appeals to morality are back on the agenda in international and national politics. The moral high ground is invoked to justify war, in discussions about waging "war" on poverty, and in many other political and social contexts. Despite this, terms such as "moralism", "moralising" and "moralistic" are increasingly used as pejorative terms. This book examines exactly what people mean when they accuse others of being "moralistic"."--BOOK JACKET

What to believe now : applying epistemology to contemporary issues by David Coady ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What can we know and what should we believe about today's world? What to Believe Now: Applying Epistemology to Contemporary Issues applies the concerns and techniques of epistemology to a wide variety of contemporary issues. Questions about what we can know-and what we should believe-are first addressed through an explicit consideration of the practicalities of working these issues out at the dawn of the twenty-first century. Coady calls for an 'applied turn' in epistemology, a process he likens to the applied turn that transformed the study of ethics in the early 1970s. Subjec
