Two Years of Experience in Teaching an Undergraduate Course on World Peace.
Thiry, Leon
An outline and related bibliography for a world peace course is presented in this paper. Designed for the college student, the course encompasses an interdisciplinary approach focusing primarily on the philosophical and the psychological aspects of the problems of peace. In this paper, the author also reflects on his involvement in the development of this course and the students response to it. Some of his general observations in teaching the course are that: 1) some students seem to oppose world government because they are convinced that all governments are villians; 2) many students have no sense for the historical aspects of problems; and, 3) many students feel that the moral aspects of war and war practices are irrelevant because "nobody cares anyway."
