Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book, International law and ethics after the critical challenge : framing the legal within the post-foundational, which examines what is left of ethics, politics and law (and in particular international law) if one accepts that the conceptual oppositions upon which much theorising in each discipline is based are in fact irreconcilable. The book outlines the issues of post-foundationalism and ethics. Ethical is a characteristic that one ascribes to a particular act-in-context under certain circumstances; ethics thus speaks directly to judgment as the right thing to do in any given situation. The chapter discusses justification and responsibility and the ways in which they interact with the notion of post-foundational ethics.
