9 pages (2250 words) , Download 1
...Barbaric? Introduction It is completely possible for a rightful war to be waged in a barbaric way and for a barbaric war to be waged in rigid compliance with a set of laws. However, this freedom is still baffling. It is morally wrong to perpetrate violence, but violent war is an endeavour guided by law. It is right to fight violence, but the struggle is governed by moral limitations. This dualism makes the issue of morality of war problematic.1 This essay analyses if warfare is absolutely barbaric. Above all, it is important to define ‘barbarism’. This essay uses the following definition given by R.G. Collingwood (1942): By barbarism I mean hostility towards...

...barbarism In his essay ‘of cannibals’, Michel de Montaigne sets out to define barbarism. In the essays, he suggests that people consider something as barbaric when it is unknown to them (Montaigne). He defends the non-Europeans of the ‘new world’ and further proclaims that it is his own society that is corrupt and barbaric in its ideals. Montaigne argues that Europeans are guilty of practicing murder and cruelty and therefore the assumption that European civilization was superior to tribal cultures was dubious. In his description of the Brazilian cannibals, he portrays them in three definitions. He first asserts them as non-barbaric who are unlike the Europeans (Montaigne). He noted... Montaigne’s of...
