    Nonviolence and Tolstoy’s Hard Question.Charles K. Fink - 2017 - The Acorn 17 (2):101-117.
    Pacifists are often put on the defensive with cases—real or imagined—in which innocent people are threatened by violent criminals. Is it always wrong to respond to violence with violence, even in defense of the innocent? This is the “hard” question addressed in this article. I argue that it is at least permissible to maintain one’s commitment to nonviolence in such cases. This may not seem like a bold conclusion, yet pacifists are often ridiculed—sometimes as cowards, sometimes as selfish moral purists—for (...)

    Editor's Introduction.Greg Moses - 2017 - The Acorn 17 (2):93-94.
    Peace philosophy tests the question of what must be considered in fulfillment of a duty or desire to renounce interpersonal violence in an already violent world. Is one not justified in using violence to defend oneself or others? If interpersonal violence on such grounds may be justified, may one not carry guns? Our feature articles in this issue of The Acorn address those recurring questions from the perspective of classic peace philosophers Leo Tolstoy and Immanuel Kant. Our three book reviews (...)

    Imperatives of Peace.Corey L. Barnes - 2017 - The Acorn 17 (1):5-31.
    Cosmopolitanism seems to appeal to liberal neutrality because both are committed to core values such as reciprocity, autonomy, respect for the individual, personal accountability, and inclusivity. Further, cosmopolitanism is legitimate for many only insofar as it endorses value-pluralism in open societies, which is a staple of liberal neutrality. And yet, one might think that there is a moral obligation to create a cosmopolitan community. One can think of this as moral cosmopolitanism. To the end of creating a cosmopolitan community, certain (...)

    Affirming a Vital Connection.Sanjay Lal - 2017 - The Acorn 17 (1):33-51.
    Having freedom from the fear of death is a quality needed not just by peace activists; however, it is in particular need of affirmation by those espousing a philosophy of nonviolence. A rich philosophical literature explores the supposed harmfulness of death, but the topic is scarcely discussed by peace theorists. This paper shows the significance of the topic for highlighting the attractiveness of nonviolent philosophy given certain non-religious understandings of death that are well suited for advancing nonviolence. Classic Stoic and (...)

    Editor's Introduction.Greg Moses - 2017 - The Acorn 17 (1):1-3.
    Epicurus, Marcus Aurelius, Mahatma Gandhi, Alain Locke, Howard Thurman, and Dr. Huey Newton comprise central figures of concern in three feature articles of this issue. The fourth feature takes us on a climate march through Washington, D.C. where the central figure of concern is a broken global relationship. In addition, we offer book reviews that take up applications of nonviolence to counter-terrorism, of ethics to immigration, of pacifism to war, and cosmopolitanism to peacebuilding.

    Anger, Despondence, and Nonviolence.John Nolt - 2017 - The Acorn 17 (1):53-60.
    Reflections on anger, despondence, and nonviolence are prompted by student responses to the 2016 election, especially given the likely implications for climate change policy. The author reflects on the value of nonviolence, environmental activism, and participation in a national climate march.
