Philosophy of peace
Fri February 28, 2014
When is compromise too rotten to accept?
Tonight's talk in the President's lecture series at the University of Montana is one of the many events cancelled because of today's blizzard - but the featured speaker did brave the elements today to sit down in our studios with News Director Sally Mauk. Avishai Margalit is an emeritus philosophy professor at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, an author, and one of the foremost living philosophers, who has written extensively about the struggle between Islam and the West.
In this feature interview, Margolit talks about his view that the lofty goal of "peace with justice" is not always attainable.
