REFLECTION ON THE CAUSES AND MORAL JUSTIFICATIONS OF WAR

Abstract

Author(s): Dotun OGUNKOYA

Today, our lives are constantly threatened because of technological advancement or sophistication in the art of war. As society evolved, war became better organized and consequently more destructive. We have developed the ability to destroy the entire planet at the push of a button. Thus, as we are compelled by certain reasons to wage war with use of modern and more sophisticated weapons, we realize that we are gradually opening a Pandora’s Box of technological madness which is capable of wiping out human race. This has made human beings the most dangerous species on the planet. This paper attempts to reflect on the causes of war with the view to determining its moral justifications. By so-doing, the paper centers its discourse on two major aspects of the study of war. First, it examines, the existing causes of war; and second, it looks at the moral justifications for war among mankind.
