I am a Senior Lecturer at the Departments of Political Science and International Relations at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. My current research concerns the political and ethical thought of the Late Scholastics with an emphasis on Fransico Suarez. I am also the author of Aquinas on Friendship (Oxford: OUP, 2007) and non-historical papers contributing to present ethical debates. I am using my sabbatical stay at Toronto to write a book. The book surveys the development of late scholastic controversies about the duties of subjects. It covers themes such as: the moral permissibility of: fighting in morally doubtful wars, vote-buying, expelling the foreign poor from the city and the moral limits of artistic freedom.
