Description

Strategy: War & Peace

Strategy: War & Peace will focus on the American founding. This course begins by considering the advice George Washington gave us on foreign policy in his Farewell Address. Why have we largely ignored that advice for more than a century? That question will take us back to the first principles of strategy.

What is war, and why do nations fight? What kind of peace do we want, and how can we preserve it? If we must go to war, how do we give ourselves the best possible chance to win? To answer those questions, we will look both at historical examples, and at the great theoreticians of war and national strategy.

Course readings for Strategy: War & Peace will have a wide range, including: ancient works such as Thucydides’ history of the Peloponnesian War, and the Chinese sage Sun Tzu; medieval and early modern authorities, such as Thomas Aquinas and Machiavelli; and contemporary scholars such as Angelo Codevilla and Edward Luttwak.

Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.
― George Washington, George Washington’s Farewell Address
