Telos 181 · Winter 2017
War and Civil War

Politics today has become the internalization of war by other means. In Telos 181, we turn to the theme of conflict, of war and civil war, as an opportunity to discuss relevant aspects of the political theory tradition and to place them in relation to some current topics.
