Abstract

Since the events of 9/11, ordinary people and governments are struggling more than ever to make sense of the seemingly senseless acts of terrorists that threaten nearly all countries, directly or indirectly. Singapore Management University philosophy professor Thomas Brian Mooney is coauthor, along with Rob Imre and Ben Clarke, of a new book, Terrorism, Causes and Cures: Legal, Political and Philosophical Perspectives, to be published later this year by Ashgate Press. Mooney talks to Knowledge@SMU about the importance of “storytelling”, as compared with adopting a purely rational approach, to help understand the causes of terrorism.
