Daniel Maguire @UWW Apr 21

Daniel Maguire, Marquette University Ethics Professor, will present “Paranoia and the Roots of War: Unmasking the Illusions of a ‘Superpower” on Monday April 21st, 7 p.m., in the Hamilton Center (James R. Connor University Center). This is the Political Science Department’s 23rd Annual John Kenneth Kyle Lecture.

Professor Maguire’s specialty is religious ethics, focusing upon issues of social justice and medical and ecological ethics.

Horrors We Bless coverHe has authored several books, five of which are available from the University Library. Search the catalog for the author maguire daniel to see the list. Additional titles may be requested free by UWW students and staff from other UW libraries using the Universal Borrowing service. His 2007 book Horrors we bless: Rethinking the Just-War Legacy is not available in the UW System, but could be obtained through the ILLiad interlibrary loan service (for $1). There are preview pages available online through Google Book Search.

There also are many articles in magazines, newspapers, and journals by or about him. For example, search for au maguire daniel c in Academic Search Premier (Ebsco). Or search for LPER({MAGUIRE, DANIEL}) in ProQuest Newsstand, finding there, for example, an article “War urge: Ingrained in humanity” (Charleston Gazette, June 2007), which discusses Horrors we bless and includes the quote “Humans have been at peace for only 8 percent of the past 3,400 years of recorded history.”

I expect this to be a thought-provoking talk.
