Presented by Nicholas Tampio (Political Science) and Adam Fried (Center for Ethics Education).
Talk Description: America is currently embroiled in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with tens of thousands of injured and traumatized veterans returning home. This seminar offered moral and clinical perspectives on the following questions:
What are our moral obligations to injured veterans?
What are the long-term consequences of war-related traumas and how should we treat or compensate wounded veterans?
What are the post-war human and economic costs and how do they influence our thinking about future wars?
