ABSTRACT
Chapter 2 of the book " Philosophical Perspectives on the "War on Terrorism"" is presented. It discusses the author's view that democracy must be valued in terms of its interpersonal aspect, based on a mutual respect among individuals. He cites French philosopher Luce Irigaray whose position is that love, respect and mutuality are the basis of a democracy and explores the failure of the George W. Bush foreign policy doctrine from this perspective. The author believes that mutual understanding is necessary to end terrorism.
