                                      Diderot’s Salons show that the ‘imagi-          this book analyses this relation between the Idealist conception of the

    International Justice After the Cold War: Essays with Applications consid-
    ers, analyzes, and evaluates the theoretical and conceptual contribu-
    tions to the novel multidisciplinary field of “international justice” that
    emerged in the Post-Cold War, U.S.-dominated, unipolar world. Philos-
    ophers have not, for the most part, participated in generating massive
    production in this field, even though they are uniquely well-suited to
    the task of scrutinizing the merits of this international justice discourse
    that is often lacking in its historical, factual, and methodological un-
    derpinnings. This volume, aimed at both professionals and the general
    public, may go some way toward filling this gap by critically examin-
    ing some key components of the “international justice discourse,” such
    as the nature of contemporary military ethics, challenges to defending
    the right of collective self-defense, construction of an ethics on inter-
    national activism, the weaponization of genocide discourse, and chal-
    lenges to attempts to morally justify claims about economic sanctions
    and the so-called “just war” theory.

                                                This book questions the extent to
                                                which knowledge and experience can
                                                be reasonably, if at all, separated in

                                                text for a response to this question in

    All quantum-physical and cosmological causal/non-causal dilemmas
    have superluminally causal solutions if existents are processual by ex-
    tension-change impact-transfer. Fixing the extent of applicability of
    mathematics to physics demonstrates Universal Causality for cosmo-
    genetic theories. Whether the cosmos is of finite or infinite content, the
    Gravitational Coalescence Paradox in cosmogenetic theories yields a
    philosophical cosmology of infinite-eternal continuous creation: spe-
    cifically, the Gravitational Coalescence Cosmology.
