Humanitarianism: What is it? Doll Lecture on Religion and Money by Michael Walzer

Story imageOne of America’s foremost political thinkers, Michael Walzer addresses a wide variety of topics in political theory and moral philosophy in his writings; these include 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 Arguing About War (2004), On Toleration (1999), and Just and Unjust Wars (1977); he has served as editor of the political journal, Dissent, since the early days of the Civil Rights movement. Currently, he is working on the toleration and accommodation of “differenceâ€? in all its forms and also on a collaborative project focused on the history of Jewish political thought.

This lecture marks the fifth annual Doll Lecture on Religion and Money. The Doll Family Lectureship was established by Henry C. Doll ’58 and his family. The purpose of the lectureship is to bring distinguished speakers to Princeton University who will inspire students, faculty, and the campus community toward a greater understanding of the many – and often neglected – relationships between religion and money in our own time and historically.
