War scars human history and continues to mar lives across the globe. Is war part of human nature? Is it ever morally justified? And with the development of advanced weapon technologies, will future wars be more destructive than ever before? Bringing together philosophy, history, and cultural evolution, we explore the past, present, and future of war and ask what, if anything, can be done to make war less likely.
