Ten years after 9/11, have we been able to broach the full significance of this violent event? Can we respond other than with a call for retribution or by seeing it as an isolated attack on the American way of life? Did 9/11 interfere with how Americans perceive societies that are more readily associated with perpetrating — and suffering — acts of terror and destruction? Are there ethical lessons still to be learned from this terror? Such questions are the focus of this symposium of diverse scholars reflecting on the “Other” 9/11 — under-explored 9/11 issues.

Pace University's Center for Ethical Thinking is dedicated to posing and employing ethics as a worldview, a prism through which we view the world and construct our reality and our position within it. Through regular symposia, lectures, and discussions, the center seeks to engage Pace’s academic community and the community at large in political, cultural, and social questions from an ethical point of view.
