NEH Enduring Questions Course on "Is There Such a Thing as a Just War?"

The development of an undergraduate course that examines arguments in the Bhagavad Gita, Augustine, Aquinas, von Clausewitz, and the Geneva Conventions.

A new interdisciplinary course will be developed around the question, "Is there such a thing as a just war?" Students will read classical but conflicting theories, critique past events, and apply historical context to today's challenges.
