The Winona State University Retiree Center will offer the non-credit course “Ethics of War” as part of Senior University 2015 from 3 to 5 p.m. every Monday, from Sept. 14 to Oct. 19 in Minne 238.
The course will examine war from the perspectives of moral and political philosophy. The course will draw attention to the amplified ethics of war since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the U.S.- led wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, NATO’s military interventions in Kosovo and Libya, and the failure of the international community to intervene in the genocide in Rwanda.
Professor emeritus Don Scheid will instruct the course. He taught in the WSU Philosophy Department for 23 years where he created and directed the interdisciplinary War, Peace, and Terrorism Minor.
The course is $40. Registration is available online.
