The justification of religious violence with Dr Steve Clarke

This week, Dr Steve Clarke will be leading a talk and discussion based on his book, The Justification of Religious Violence. Description of the book:

How are justifications for religious violence developed and do they differ from secular justifications for violence? Can liberal societies tolerate potentially violent religious groups? Can those who accept religious justifications for violence be dissuaded from acting violently? Including six in-depth contemporary case studies, The Justification of Religious Violence is the first book to examine the logical structure of justifications of religious violence.

Dr Steve Clarke is a Senior Research Fellow for the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics and Charles Sturt University, and a Senior Research Associate for the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics at the University of Oxford. He has written two books and authored over 60 papers in refereed journals.
