Annotation

Explores the novel’s complex embodiment of morality. Building on the ethical philosophy of writers like Wittgenstein, Rudy examines the way in which A Farewell to Arms operates in a world free from theodicy (the necessity of a comprehensive view). Rudy argues that the language of A Farewell to Arms complicates any attempt to arrive at a firmly grounded theory of politics or ethics.
