    Legitimate Authority as a Jus Ad Bellum Condition: Defense of a Procedural Requirement in Just War Theory.Jordy Rocheleau - 2020 - Journal of Military Ethics 19 (2):99-117.
    Today, it is widely held that while authorization may be helpful in assuring that the other jus ad bellum criteria are met, legitimate authority is not itself a condition for just recourse to war....

    Against Small Interventions On Sliding Scale Grounds.Jordy Rocheleau - 2012 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 19 (2):26-38.
    The 2011 NATO intervention in Libya has been hailed as a successful humanitarian intervention, beginning the implementation of the United Nations' Responsibility to Protect. Yet when the intervention pursued a mission of regime change which was not necessary to halt an imminent catastrophe, it became dubious on the strict reading of just cause that has been influential in just war theory. However, a recent trend suggests that minor uses of force with small cost to benefit ratios can be justified by (...)

    Communication, Recognition and Politics: Reconciling the Critical Theories of Honneth and Habermas.Jordy Rocheleau - 2001 - Social Philosophy Today 17:253-263.
    Axel Honneth has outlined a critical social theory in terms of recognition. He has recently argued that his theory is superior to the communications framework ofHabermas in that it better achieves the goals of providing normative criticism of society's ability to foster genuine and full sell-realization and explaining how emancipatory social movements can emerge within existing society. After exploring these arguments and their implications for critical theory, this paper concludes that Honneth's criticisms of Habermas fail and that the former's recognition (...)

    Combatant Responsibility for Fighting in Unjust Wars: A Defense of a Limited Moral Equality of Soldiers.Jordy Rocheleau - 2010 - Social Philosophy Today 26:93-106.
    Just war theory has traditionally presupposed what Michael Walzer calls the moral equality of soldiers: that combatants on all sides have an equal right to kill, such that the soldier is not blameworthy for fighting for an unjust cause. The theory of moral equality has come under increasing attack by Jeff McMahan and others who argue that soldiers are responsible for killing for an unjust cause. I agree with McMahan that soldiers cannot be justified in serving injustice, such that there (...)

    Communications Theory and the Future of Ideology Critique: Problems in the Normative and Explanatory Foundations of Critical Social Theory.Jordy Rocheleau - 2002 - Social Philosophy Today 18:83-96.
    Though the concept of ideology appears central to the explanation of the perseverance of systematic domination, the coherence and viability of the concepthave been repeatedly questioned. The status of the concept of ideology in critical theory has become one of simultaneous dependence and suspicion. While Habermas has been reluctant to develop the concept in his communications theory, this paper argues that ideology can be usefully and coherently defined in terms of distorted communication. It is shown that this discourse theoretical concept (...)

    Liberal Public Reason and the Legitimacy of Environmental Regulations: Toward a Deliberative Democratic Approach.Jordy Rocheleau - 2003 - Social Philosophy Today 19:103-121.
    There is a little explored tension between the regulations called for by environmentalists and the predominant liberal political theory. The latter says that laws are only legitimate when publicly defensible to all who must follow them and thus does not support the state adoption of particular values. Environmental concerns frequently fall under the category of particular values. I explore ways that liberalism does in fact support environmental regulations as furthering universal rights and justice within and between generations. However, some forms (...)

    State Consent Vs. Human Rights as Foundations for International Law: A Critique of Allen Buchanan’s Cosmopolitanism.Jordy Rocheleau - 2007 - Social Philosophy Today 23:117-132.
    The traditional view that legitimate international law is founded on the consent of the states subject to it has come under increasing attack by liberals, such as Allen Buchanan, who argue for a cosmopolitan order in which the protection of human rights norms is legally foundational. The cosmopolitan argument presupposes that human rights would be better preserved by doing away with the requirement of state consent. However, state consent is seen to be necessary for protecting the rights of individuals in (...)
