The toll of war

Pacifist me is still thinking about war and I saw that Nancy Sherman, a professor of philosophy at Georgetown, has a couple of posts at the NYT's philosophy blog - The Moral Logic of Survivor Guilt and Shame and Responsibility: A Response. Her area of interest is both Greek philosophy and war and the emotional effect it has on soldiers (one of her books is Stoic Warriors: The Ancient Philosophy behind the Military Mind). You can find a list of her books and articles at her site, and there are a number of videos of her to be found at YouTube.

Here she talks about Aristotle and war in this short bit from a longer video from Big Think ....
