The following article presents an argument for the creation of a new science for dealing with both legal and nonlegal issues relating to armed conflicts. The author submits a general theory that a legal or a nonlegal issue falling within the limits of one legal or nonlegal discipline can be resolved by a multi-legal and nonlegal approach, avoiding the often complex and insignificant making of new legislation. Defining the precise contours of the science is currently under preparation by the author. This science will certainly apply the principles set forth by this general theory, but within the confines of the particular subject matter. Accordingly, this article deals with the application of international humanitarian law in particular, and other international laws in general, to the armed conflict in Lebanon. The "laws" on which other nonlegal disciplines are grounded and can be applied here, and the "method" followed in the application of legal and nonlegal "laws," fall within the scope of "confligology" as such.
