Necessity in Self‐Defense and War

Philosophy and Public Affairs 40 (1):3-44 (2012)

Authors
Abstract
The necessity constraint is at the heart of the ethics of both self-defense and war, and yet we know little about it. This article seeks to remedy that defect. It proceeds in two stages: first, an analysis of the concept of necessity in self-defense; second, an application of this analysis to war, looking at both its implications for just war theory and its application in the laws of war.
