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.



  • The first book specifically devoted to examining the logical
    structure of justifications of religious violence

  • Seeks to understand how justifications for religious violence
    are developed and how or if they differ from ordinary secular
    justifications of violence

  • Examines 3 widely employed premises used in religious
    justifications of violence ? ?cosmic war?, the
    importance of the afterlife, and ?sacred values?

  • Considers to what extent liberal democratic societies should
    tolerate who hold that their religion justifies violent acts

  • Reflects on the possibility of effective policy measures to
    persuade those who believe that violent action is justified by
    religion, to refrain from acting violently

  • Informed by recent work in psychology, cognitive science,
    neuroscience and evolutionary biology

  • Part of the Blackwell Public Philosophy Series
