Military Ethics – Goals, Perspectives and New Paradigms towards Humanity


Authors
Abstract
The paper proposes and confronts some of the essential problems in the field of military ethics. It primarily focuses on its goals, perspectives and its use in practice. Just war theory and ethics of social consequences are used as two possible methodological approaches in dealing with these issues and in revealing the most fundamental answers in times of wars and conflicts. The article also presents the idea of the inevitability of implementing military ethics and all of its sub-fields into the structure of liberal arts and providing a defendable moral standpoint in these delicate issues.
