Michael Walzer – “Freedom and Equality: Can the Two Stand Together?”
A Professor Emeritus at the Institute for Advanced Study of Princeton, Michael Walzer has written about a wide variety of topics in political theory and moral philosophy, including political obligation, just and unjust war, nationalism and ethnicity, economic justice, and the welfare state.
He has played a critical role in the revival of a practical, issue-focused ethics and in the development of a pluralist approach to political and moral life.
Walzer’s books include Just and Unjust Wars (1977), On Toleration (1997), and Arguing About War (2004); he served as co-editor of the political journal Dissent for more than three decades, retiring in 2014.
Currently, he is working on issues having to do with international justice and the connection of religion and politics, and also on a collaborative project focused on the history of Jewish political thought.
