Ethical Look at War
War, a word that we are all familiar with, especially now while America is involved in a political conflict with Iraq. What is war? Is it human nature to resort to war? Is war moral?
Philosophers throughout history have pondered the same questions coming up with several conflicting answers. The very definition of war has been subject between philosophers. Cicero defines war as "a contention by force", Hugo Grotius adds that "war is the state of contending parities, considered such as", Thomas Hobbes notes that war is also an attitude: "By war is meant a state of affairs, which may exist even while its operations are not continued". There is
no correct answer to rather war is morally right or wrong, but the views of several philosophers conclude that war is necessary to live in peace.
