The remains of the day
>>
Close your eyes and you may still see a scene from September 11. How will the day's imprint affect the way we view our nation and its role? Three Chicago faculty members-an ethicist, an expert on images, and a philosopher who's also a psychoanalyst-consider some after-images of the terrorist attacks.

Ethicist Jean Bethke Elshtain:
Just War versus Holy War

Iconologist W. J. T. Mitchell:
The War of Images

Philosopher Jonathan Lear:
"Why do they hate us so much?"
